Back the front end in.
Had to take T home tonight so L offered to drive. We got back to town around 10:30pm-ish and, since there was next to no traffic, I thought this would be a perfect time for her to attempt backing into the garage. It took several tries with lots of "pull it ahead and straighten it out again" but eventually she got the van in there neatly. There may have been some contact with the lawnmower handle on one of the tries but that was just as much my fault as hers.
It's not an easy thing to do in my opinion and I was probably not the best teacher for it either. But she didn't give up, or even suggest giving up, and I just know that before long she'll be better at it than I am.
The title is an inside joke referring to something my father once said.
