Off to a "Great" Start

Looks like the computer is going to let me play today, so thought I'd tell you about the first morning of school.

1. It rained.

2. I got to work early so I'd have plenty of time to get my stuff situated on the bus and do my pre-trip check.

3. My boss didn't get to work early.

4. My high school run has a lot more kids this year. They are sitting three to a seat in many cases. They are not happy.

5. We were 10 minutes late getting to the school....because the kids were being snots about letting other kids sit with them. It was intimidating for the 6th graders on their first day.

6. There are about 20 less kids on my elementary run this year. Nice, as the elementary kids are the hardest to control. They tend to be hyper and loud all the time. The high school kids just have "moments."

7. I lost air pressure for the air brakes on my bus half way through the elementary run.

8. It took 15 minutes for another bus to come pick up the kids and finish my run (I didn't get to see half my kids yet).

9. It took an hour for the mechanics to come.

10. I got back to the garage an hour and a half late.

And that's only half the day! I can hardly wait to see what this afternoon brings. :oP

You're a better woman than I am, Stacy! I hope your day ends up being much better than it began. What an incredible position you're in, to let Christ shine through you in front of all those kids. Bless ya!
