That's right, folks. The sophomore is now armed and dangerous with her learner's permit. But not really a threat to others on the road. She's actually a really careful driver with good judgment. Still, I prefer to sit in the backseat and let the husband be her co-pilot for these little local errands she takes us on in her sister's car. That's the sacrificial vehicle since the grad student already banged it up the past couple years. She can take her driving test on August 9, so I imagine we'll be there bright and early that day to see if we can get her fully licensed and ready to drive herself to school solo for the start of junior year that following week.
