First time for everything

Be still my heart. Jake started riding the bus to school today. That seems very grown up. But he still wants me to pick him up so I'm all right.

We have heard some rumors that the bus driver on our route was a little, well, mean. Someone may have even said that it seems as though he hates his job. So Jake and I were both a little anxious about him. When I asked Jake how the bus ride went this morning he said it was "so cool!" Then he said that the bus driver had a mad look on his face the whole time. I asked him to demonstrate. This is what I got.
It reminds of last summer when Jake told me there was a mean girl in his Sunday school class. I asked him what was so mean about her and he said "she has angry eyebrows." Sometimes a look is worth a thousand words. Emma Mae and I had our first day of Pre-K this year.
She hates that cute pink flower headband we tried to make her wear. As soon as we took it off the smiles came out again. She is impossible.
She had a great day at school though. We are so blessed that she has two very nice, fun teachers. Ms. Mandy is a rock star around here. Jake still talks about her and she was his teacher three years ago! I had a good but exhausting day hanging out with our eight little one year olds. We're all looking forward to a great year. And we're all hoping angry bus driver man will put on his happy face at some point.

  1. Adorable pictures! I love your son's angry bus driver face. :)

    I told my son that we'd try this bus thing for a while. After that, I think I might try to drive him at least once or twice a week.
