(In front of the DMV with my permit!)I got my permit today!! In NC, we can take drivers ed at 14.5 and get our permits at 15. I've been 15 for 3 months, but I took drivers ed late, so that's why I just now got it. I did behind the wheel last week and so I was able to go to the DMV for my permit today! Dad and I started the morning with breakfast at Chickfila, ran to the bank for my SS card and birth certifercate, ran to the school for my driver's eligibility certificate, and then went to the DMV! We got there an hour and a half after it opened, and surprisingly there wasn't all that long of a wait! (especially since it was a Monday!) For the 45 minutes we did wait, I just studied and stuff. I had to identify 12 signs some blank or some with words, do a vision test and then do the written test. I got a 100 on the signs and a 100 on the written!! So that was exciting! :) My behind the wheel teacher told us that 50% of people getting their permit fail the first time... So I was extremely nervous and had studied a good while this weekend, so I was really pleased to get a perfect score. We have to get an 80 or better (20 right out of 25) to pass. So anyway... I can now drive with Mom or Dad in the car! (I'm taking advantage of that and got to drive all around today!) And I have a really cute Vera Bradley case to hold my permit :)
I have lots of cute pictures of AC opening a package from a sweet friend (thanks, Meg!!!), so stay tuned for those. Plus I have a few quilt squares to post on the quilt blog. I'll try to do that tomorrow! Thanks to everyone who has sent them! We really appreciate it! If you would like to swap with us/send one and haven't already told me, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!! Thanks!
