Andy's first time on the bus

 Andy had his first bus ride, and did pretty well. He was a little scared when he looked at the bus driver, but I stepped on the bus and said "you are going to school ok?". He wasn't crying. I was worried he might be afraid of the loud noises of the bus, but he seemed okay. My daughter and I were teary-eyed when he put his little glove onto the window. I drove up to the school and the staff said he arrived happy, and was glad to see them.

Today, the bus was a bit late, and we were waiting in the cold. So, Andy started to cry a bit, and was not happy getting on the bus. I hope these next couple of weeks go smoothly, as he adjusts to this new change.

Andy taking the bus does allow me an extra 45 minutes in the afternoon, and time to walk my daughter to school in the morning. She can also get to school on time now, and we aren't rushed to get there. When he arrived home on the bus, he was almost sleeping.

The parking lot is also very small at his school , and it is often hard to find a parking space. It's door ding central and always a hassle to back out of, because it is so cramped. Andy only has a couple of months left of school, so I'm hoping he can continue to ride the bus until school is over. It's already helping to cut a little stress out of my day!
