Driving Miss Annabelle

Actually, it's the other way around. Annabelle is the one driving me. In a car that is.
Our oldest girl recently got her permit which means now we have to spend six months practicing driving.
We started in school and church parking lots. She is hesitant but motivated.
A few days later we graduated to quiet residential streets. Her confidence building, she asked to drive to Grandma's house. We made it there in one piece.
My goal is to get her highway ready in one month, before we leave to take her to her summer art program in LA. I'm thinking Highway 5 is the perfect long stretch of freeway for a 17-year-old to practice going more than 30 mph.
She'll get the driving experience... and I'll probably get more gray hairs.
