Baby You Can Drive My Car
Do you recognize the title of my post? It's an old Beatles song, beep beep, beep beep, yeah!! The girls just love to sit in our car and pretend to drive. And in the first two pictures, they are just pretending. But last month, we really let Anne Marie drive our car! This is the last two pictures. The age for getting a learner's permit has recently been lowered to five! Just kidding...here's what really happened. When we went to the drive through safari, Anne was up front sitting between me and Phil, and she crawled in his lap, touched the wheel and looked up at him. He knew the time had come, and let her steer through the trail, through all the animals! You can see how delighted she was, no more pretend! And I'm proud to report that not a single animal was wounded or killed! Though some of the places were really rough, Phil made them all smooth by his gentle and quiet guidance.
"I will lead the blind by ways they have not known,
along unfamiliar paths I will guide them;
I will turn the darkness into light before them
and make the rough places smooth.
These are the things I will do;
I will not forsake them."
