Big A passed his written CDL test today!! He's been taking it the last 3 Fridays (maybe?). There are 4 tests and he passed one of them last Friday. Then he passed the other THREE today! It just makes me so happy for him because I know he was getting down (sometimes you can totally tell how his upbringing and lack of confidence from his parents just infiltrates his self-esteem...but that's a whole other post). I just kept telling him that he could do it and I prayed over him last night that he could do it if it were His Will. And he did it! Apparently, this is a really hard test that a lot of people have a hard time with.
So now he just has to pass the actual driving test, and he gets his CDL (which also means a $.50 raise!)! But he's driven big vehicles before: a big truck (close to a semi) for his job prior to the group home, a Penske truck twice halfway across the country. I'm not worried for him but we'll see how it goes. Personally, I am never planning on taking the CDL because I'm a wuss. :) Seriously, I had troubles driving the 12-passenger van in Virginia - I hate those things.
But congratulations honey; we're so proud of you!
