Christmas Break

Yesterday was the last day of school.  I was highly rewarded by my little ones for my effort.  Candy, homemade cookies, gift cards, cards with the whole family smiling in front of their Christmas tree.  It was so cool.

AND the bus driver didn't even have to yell...the grade schoolers were suffering from their post party sugar let down so the trip home was quiet, except one kid that I always have trouble with.  And I'll deal with him when we come back ;)

I am now settling in for a much needed break. I did not bid on any extra trips, it's off from work until January 3rd see you then!

1 more day!

On Friday my grade school kids got in a ton of trouble the day before at school, so they were lectured by the principal before they put them on my bus.  Didn't do any good they were still bouncing off the walls.  I had a new driver riding along and he decided to have a "talk" with them before we took off.  BIG DEAL!  Is this goof going to ride with me the rest of the year???  And play bouncer???

I'll ride out the next two days and then during break I'll assign seats.  Just a few have ruined it for the group.  I will not punish the good for the bad.

But I must be safe.


I am off and running!  this afternoon and then tomorrow and I am off until January 3rd!

whoa it's -9

WOW!  It's -9 this morning.  With the Wind Chill it's -20.  Thankfully the mechanics turn all our buses on.  AND my next door neighbor bus 29 alias Mr. Jim turns all my heaters on so my bus is running and as warm as the old girl can be at 6:00 am.


It's a snowpants and long johns morning for this girl.  Let's just see how many coatless, frozen hair junior high kids I see this morning!???!!


Tomorrow it's 1-3 inches of snow...whooo hooo at least it will warm up enough to snow!  I HATE COLD!!

LIttle snow


It snowed this morning and you would have thought it was a blizzard!  Traffic was horrible!  People were sliding into the ditches, into poles, into curbs, into each other, but THANKFULLY not into me! 

But this is the norm for this area.  It is very pretty out and I can't wait to see the Christmas lights tonight with the snowy background.
