Back to school

Tuesday, September 8 was the return to school in our district. Lots of parents with cameras gathered to send off the almost 20 kids who boarded the yellow school bus at the corner of our yard.

  2. I have only been to NYC for a few days, but I remember seeing a bus like this, and it made me so HAPPY!!? Probably because I have seen it on TV and thought it was familiar ...... I can be a big child!
    And I agree with Oliver, this represent America.

  4. I've been taking my grandson to kindergarten since August 24. It's the best time of the day as far as I'm concerned! We have so much fun in the mornings.

  7. That bus looks so old fashioned and solid.

    I thinks it's an iconic image of the USA.
