Em is off to her first real day of class. We were given the address of the bus stop as being across and up the street a bit. Anyone who knows older New England country roads knows how prevalent poison ivy is. The driveway of the bus stop has poison ivy on both sides, and those nasty runners coming out onto the driveway. Keeping James away from them was not fun.
The bus driver pulled up on the other side of the road (which is actually OUR side), and we chatted for a few moments. Since she comes with the door on our side, she’s going to simply stop at our driveway. HOORAY!!! No more poison ivy vines every day for James. 🙂 🙂
Emilie’s bus driver is named Jane, a very pleasant lady! Em ran right onto the bus, sat down, and started talking with kids and the bus mom. I had to actually call her back out of her seat to get this one photo. 🙂 She’s excited for school, and we’re very excited for her.
And no, no one cried (I still don’t get that!).
