Our neighbor recently started giving his daughter driving lessons around our neighborhood. Casey and she are the same age so he asked if I would do the same with him. I agreed to let him try! We live in a pretty rural-like neighborhood that is really quiet on the weekends, so I wasn't worried about traffic. Last week he learned about the brake and gas and he drove around the triangle down the street and back. He did pretty well. He learned that the car moves without even putting your foot on the gas. It was a good lesson.
This weekend he drove out of our driveway and went around the block. He did a great job. I know he has a few years until he can get his license, but there is no harm in building up his confidence now, is there? It is a fun time in the car with my cutie pie. I love making him smile.
