Putting my three year old on a public school bus for the first time was heart wrenching. Not to mention that he was going five days a week. We had a few speed bumps like getting his bus stop moved from Taladega to our driveway and the bus not showing up at all but once I strong armed my way through that (as every parent should) we were good to go. He loved every minute of it but it was overwhelming for me.
Seeing my big boy stand on the sidewalk, with hsi Lightening McQueen backpack strapped to his back, waiting for the bus to come with such excitement was a wonderful thing! He'd talked about the bus for weeks and when he finally got on it, he went right to his seat and sat down. I got on to take some photos and he was smiling from ear to ear!
