Dmitry got his driver's license.
Since he had successfully completed the Sears' course all he had to do was take paperwork up, fill in a form, I plunked down $24, he got thumbprinted and photographed and he was handed his temporary license, permanent to follow in about three weeks.
Had to pull over into another parking space prior to leaving the Lake Worth DPS office for a brief weep, since his father's not here for the occasion.
Dmitry's so different from all the other kids. Is he begging to be allowed to drive somewhere or other now he has his license?
Nope. He walked Max and has settled down at the computer with Age of Empires III.
To be fair to him, though, last night after I'd picked him up at Carolyn's I suggested that, due to the severe storm bearing down on us, he might put his car in the now-vacant spot in the garage. Trouble is, any car there needs to be far to the right to allow room for the van (dumb packed garage!). I usually have to back out again and pull in again.
By jingo if he didn't sweep into it in a masterful fashion, getting it right the first time.
