Why do I love this photo? Because ...
- Cooper's laugh is pure joy.
- We were both a little giddy with his first-ever driving lesson.
- He's driving my minivan in the parking lot of Bledsoe Elementary, his home for six years. On the other side of the Odyssey is the playground that hosted every recess from kindergarten to fifth grade.
- When this child was born, I never imagined I would be his first driving instructor. Steve was in charge of all things car-related. Yet, here we are, and Cooper and I are figuring it out together.
