The Big Cheese

After begging for over a year, I finally gave in and let the kiddos try riding the bus home from school.  
We live about 100 yards from the school, so their daily adventure is about 5 minutes long total, but they love it!

This was the bus pulling up on their first afternoon.

And they made it home safely!
I must admit that I can see the school from my house and can watch the bus as it drives the route, but at least they feel like they are gaining some independence, right?

The bus can't actually turn on our street because we live on a very small cul-de-sac and there would be nowhere for the bus to turn around.  So, the dogs and I have been walking to the end of our street every afternoon to watch and wait for the kiddos.

I made our bus driver a school bus scarf with her name as a little "thank you".

Life gets "real" bad when you get stuck behind a school bus.

Forever. Well, seems like it.
