Some of you know about our awesome bus driver, Mr. Scott. I've even done a scrapbook page about him before because he was just such an important part of Ethan's Kindergarten year. This man is beyond amazing for many reasons, but the best reason is because he and Ethan really took a shine to each other. They are buddies with a mutual admiration society. Anyhoo, I got thinking on this subject because school is starting up again soon (as I mentioned in my last post), so Mr. Scott has been making his rounds, practicing his route and getting things ready and in shape for the first day. What this means for us is that the bus has been going by our house everyday for the past few days and it sends my boys into a tizzy - especially Carson. Carson LOVES buses. He points out every stinking bus we see anywhere we are. Even mail trucks are called mail "buses." He's a boy obsessed. So we thought it would be neat (and Mr. Scott agreed) to let Carson actually ride on the bus around the subdivision one afternoon. Oh boy. You would have thought the kiddo won the lottery. He was SO excited. Um, that is until the bus actually came. For some reason, that changed his mind. I admit seeing that huge yellow bus parked in front of our house was a bit of an awesome site. So I tried to carry him onto the bus but he'd have none of that as he clung to my neck. He reluctantly went to Daddy who tried and actually managed to get him on the bus - but his lip was stuck out so far, you could have landed a plane on it! Lol But we managed to get them on a ride around the block (it didn't hurt that Mr. Scott bribed him with M&M's! Gotta love a boy who will work for chocolate!). The look on his face when he came back was entirely different. He LOVED it (can you tell?!). I'm somehow doubting this will curb his obsession!
