An Awesome Birthday!

Wednesday, the day before my eighteenth birthday, I took my driver's license test. I had been waiting for this day for a long time! My dad and I spent most of the day waiting in line and filling out paperwork. Boring. But our patience paid off. At three o'clock that afternoon, I took my driving test...and passed! Yea!!! Praise the Lord!

I was somewhat nervous about taking it after hearing that both my mom and dad failed on their first try. But Daddy was an awesome instructor and I had almost two years of practice with my learner's permit. In my parents' defense, they didn't have the advantage of the extra practice time.

It was a wonderful birthday present! My siblings have been asking me to drive them various places now that I have my license. Benjamin wants me to take him out for ice cream and Grace has asked me to take her shopping and to the library!=)

Right now, I just have a temporary license until the real one comes in the mail. I can't wait!!!

I had a great birthday and I thank the Lord for His blessings and unfailing love.


P.S. I forgot to mention that I got to go to the Cheesecake Factory to get cheesecake for my birthday!!!!!!!

    I can't wait to get my learner's permit! My grandpa let me drive on our street a little bit yesterday and it was SOO much fun!!!!!!!!! So Happy for you!!!!! :D

  3. What a great birthday present -- and Cheesecake Factory, too! I'm so proud of you, sweetheart! You're a great driver, and you have very wise parents who allowed you to drive many times over the past two years. Fantastic!
