2 out of 4 - Getting to the school bus on time

So far, I'd say I'm not doing too well with regard to getting the girls to the school bus on time. They literally had to hold the bus for GG and Elly as it was pulling out of the driveway. They saw me running to the bus (probably not a pretty sight) and, most likely, heard me yelling to the girls to "HURRY UP!! It's leaving! RUN!!!" Poor Elly was in tears. I guess the positive side is that they did  get on the bus without having to run down the street trying to catch up to it as it was driving. In all honesty, though, it probably wouldn't have been the girls chasing down the bus, it would have been me and we all know I NEVER would have caught it. 

In my favor, though, I have to say that I have not been late picking up the girls at the bus yet. :-D
Yeah for me!! 


  1. Starlene,

    you CAN do it!! You just needed the first week to adjust to the idea, then you will do fine!

    I'm trying to re-adjust my internal clock so I can get up 2 hours earlier then my body wants I went to bed at 10 last night. Didn't work so well, I tossed and turned till 12:30 and got up at my usual 8 a.m. oh well, I'm going to keep trying.

  2. It's going to be a rude awakening in our houshold when school starts. I have to drop Diz off at 8:30 at school and Mas at 8:45 at pre-school.I hope I don't get a speeding ticket in the process!
    The first and last week of school is always the hardest. Hang in there!
