Well, this was it. The much anticipated and nerve wracking day for two of my children. Going off to new schools. A middle schooler and a 3rd grader now. Both riding a bus for the first time in a very long time. Both anxious. Both nervous. Both ready well before they had to leave...
So Natalie waited 40 minutes for her bus to come. It finally arrived at 8:00 when school starts. Great, so first day at a new school with new things to learn and she's already very late. I know they were giving them extra time, but she was going to be very rushed. Poor kid. I'm anxious to hear how everything goes. No phone calls yet so I guess she's okay.
So when I walked out the door I noticed that up the street from us there was another bus stop. I thought that's strange, but we walked down the street to the same stop Natalie was at. We waited for maybe a minute before the bus showed up. She got on the bus and was on her way. I walked back home with CJ and the children were still standing at the other bus stop. Hmmm, I wonder if Kaitlyn should be on that bus. It got picked up maybe five minutes later. Well, at least I know if she's ever running late she has other options. I went in the house and checked out the bus routes and discovered that other stop was a completely different bus. I wonder which one they will put her on coming home. We are literally in the middle of these two bus stops.
So even though we were ready on time I felt rushed this morning. Hopefully as the weeks go on we get a better idea of when these buses will arrive. Hopefully Natalie's bus won't be so late the rest of the year. Because I really only had five or ten minutes after she got on the bus to get Kaitlyn all ready for her bus. So I was a little frazzled with these buses. But everyone's in school and no phone calls so far so all must be good. Can't wait to hear how their day goes.
