Everything went so smoothly this morning, I'm kind of worried about how this afternoon will go. Ha! Actually, it's been great. One problem kid moved away, a couple moved up from elementary to middle school which changed the dynamics of the bus (for the better), and one whole family of sweet (but rather boisterous girls) seems to have moved away, and several high school kids are now driving. I only have 24 kids on the high school bus (that's ALL of them even if no one drives themselves) and 21 on the elementary bus. Not too bad at all.
My vo-tech run has changed this year. There is a student in a wheel chair going so the school did away with one big bus and contracted for a mini-bus with a wheelchair lift. There's no possible way for me to switch buses and take the kids to vo-tech then switch back and do my elementary run on time, so someone else has to take them. I stick around the garage after the morning runs and go get them with the mini-bus when it's time. It's a pain and I'm not thrilled with the way it chops up my day, but if I do this then if they ever put another big bus back on the vo-tech run, it's automatically mine. If I don't do this, then the next full run would go up for bid.
We ushered summer out with a quiet day at home yesterday. My hubby built the bar for our daughter's wedding (she wanted one made from pallets). Our daughter and future son-in-law came over to help in the afternoon and I got to watch the boy!
|The front of the bar. It's going to be stained a darker color|
and will be decorated with white lights and autumn leaves.
|The back side has a shelf (will be getting a rail on the shelf)|
to sit bottles on and enough room for the bartender and
the groom's parents' Kegerator.

And now it's, unfortunately, time to head back to work for the afternoon. Have a great week!
