No summer for us this year, apparently
I've been busy teaching Z to drive. The easy part - learning the mechanics of driving and getting used to the "feel" of the wheel - is behind us. The hard part - developing that sense of judgment, learning to "read" the road and other drivers, and a readiness to react to the unexpected - is ahead of us. That, and parallel parking. We will still have to do some night driving and quite a bit of winter driving (there are so many different types of conditions - snow/ice/slush/rain-on-ice/etc. - that he'll have to learn to deal with) before he can get his own license.
