Do you remember the first time someone taught you to drive? Do you have kids that drive or are approaching that age?
Seeing your kids drive for the first time can be so many things: exciting, fulfilling, nerve-wracking, horrifying!
I still remember when I was 15 and my Mom took me to an empty church parking lot and we drove around for quite some time. When she felt I was ready, she suggested we try it. And, apparently, I said: “You mean on the actual road ?”
I guess I was a little apprehensive.
On the other hand, my nephew could not wait to get his permit and I remember driving with him because my sister just did not want to. He had all the confidence in the world, but she didn’t.
It all worked out fine though – no mishaps and it solidified the bond we’ve always had. It’s great to be able to share what you’ve learned through experience and to watch those you love grow and take off on their own.
Now, can you imagine having, not one, not two kids ready and eager to drive, but five?
Well, meet the Jansens, a Midwestern famliy with quintuplets, yep, five ready to drive! They’re all fifteen years old and all learning at the same time.
State Farm’s new blog 5willdrive.com follows the Jansen family and their quintuplets through their journey in teaching all five of them how to drive.
Meet Mom, Dad, big sister Nicole, and the quintuplets: Elijah, Taylor, Miranda, Nick and Carter, the youngest. Each has their own unique personality and interests. Learn what it feels like to be in the joy and chaos of a big, loving family. It can be extremely challenging in general and learning to drive with five is a huge stepping stone.
