A Father's Duty

Calvin behind the wheel

Of all the rites of passage that a teenager goes through, none seems as monumental as learning to drive. This is now my third experience of teaching a son the responsibilties and skills of controlling a 2000 lb. vehicle at varying speeds and situations. Calvin is doing a great job. However, I am reminded again of how much knowledge and judgement is needed to drive effectively and safely. There are just so many little things that an experienced driver does automatically, but a neophyte has no awareness of. This task of driver's training is one that both Esther and the boys are glad that I take responsility for :)
