Bus Ride

Many years Aiden spent waving out the front door as his brothers hopped on the bus to ride to school. He met them at the door in the afternoons when they hopped off the bus and came running inside. Preschool started and he was sad that he still couldn't ride that bus. He had to wait until kindergarten. 1st day of buses. But today, finally, he got to ride the bus. That is all he has talked about since last night. He knew he was going to sit by Noah. He was dressed, backpack on and outside at 7:20. The bus doesn't arrive until 7:45. Such a long wait. Finally he saw it coming and was jumping around and pointing as if his brothers had never seen the bus before.

And off he went with a half a wave to mom, anxious for that long 9 block journey to school. Yes, that was 9 blocks. But, he was on a school bus. He's a big guy now.

Awww. How sweet is that?? I love it.
Tommy is the same way. He is going to be taking the bus home now that he is in first grade. He talks about it nonstop. So cute. :) I think Joey is looking forward to having him on the bus almost as much as Tommy is. :)

What a great post Kelly...made me teary. Your 'baby' really is on his Big Guy journey now. Time goes twice as fast once they begin school.
