Driving Away

My baby is 16 years old.  She has a car to drive.  I like not having to drive her everywhere anymore, but I don't like that she is just another step closer to being really grown up.  
She got her driver's license early so she was able to drive to school on her birthday.  
I wanted her to leave early since we haven't practiced her driving to school before.  We had our first frost of the fall so she had to scrape frost before time to go.  All by herself.  She has to learn.

And there she goes.....

This is what the car looks like in the daylight.  As with all the cars in our house, it still belongs to the parents.  She just  gets to drive it. 

We got her roses for her birthday.  
I think the first roses a girl ever gets should be from her father.
 (or her mom if the dad doesn't think about it.)
She's like her dad.  They like yellow roses best.

One of these days this little girl will be driving herself out of our home into a new life of her own. I hope I've taught her enough about what are the most important things of life.  And I know that love will always bring her home again.
