I was leaving the post office and heading toward my dentist's office the next town over.
Thinking I could save time by taking backroads--off I went.
What's that up ahead? Oh! No! School is out! I'm stuck behind this bus which is stopping at the end of every other driveway.
I was in plenty of time for my appointment, but none the less I was happy to see that school bus take a right where I was turning left.
Over the hill I go and--oh! No! Another bus!
If you can't beat them--or pass them---slow down and remember what it was like to ride the bus to and from school in my own school years. Other memorable moments sending my own kids off on the bus when they started school.
This is the stuff memories are made of. This is how we gauge the passing of time and easing out of summer and into another school year.
I've enjoyed seeing every one's "first day of school" pics on Facebook. Precious!
The upside of a 4pm dentist appointment? All the busses will be done and gone by the time I am on my way back home!
This is a pic I took while at a stop on my way. The apple effect is thanks to a photoshop iPhone app!
