The bus

Almost every bad word, phrase I learned in life, I learned on the bus.  A few came from my Dad - ha!

So it kills me that she's old enough to ride the bus.

They pick her up at 7:05.

Jade walked her out on Friday.

Today she wanted to walk out on her own.

I have teared up both days.  When will it stop?  Probably not this week because Thursday, sweet Everett Mason will board the bus with her. 

That means every day by 7:06, it will be just me and Ollie.

Everett will bus home after preschool at 10:30.  Aubrie will bus home at the end of the day.  They are growing up so fast.  I thought I was ready for it, but it appears I am not.

Ollie please stay small forever.

On a different note, Maggie Jo is headed to the Dr. today.  It is her due date for Penelope Jane.  Pray that Penelope comes soon!  Maggie is tired, and Aunt Annie is ready for a second baby in the house!


  1. I teared up reading this post. It brought back memories of my sons first day of kindergarten :'( its gotten a little easier, but I still don't like to see him go.

  2. now I am crying. I will be there at 4:05 to greet her off that bus.
    PS Some ornery things you learned from Drew!

  3. I love the picture of Everett watching Aubrie getting on that bus. Everytime our children pass another milestone, it makes us cry doesn't it? They grow up fast, hug them while they are small. When they are big they will hug you! Best wishes to your sister! Ann {{Ollie}} {{Penelope Jane}}

  4. Well... it's been a long time since I have been in your particular shoes. 8 years to be exact. But I still remember how heartbreaking it was to know that my baby didn't need me so much any more and to realize that he wasn't a baby any longer. Rough stuff. And unfortunately, it doesn't get a whole lot easier as time goes by. The passing milestones, as well as the passing years, just go by quicker and bring you closer to the day that you have to watch them pack their car and strike out on their own.
    AS hard as it is to do this, always remember that this is what it is to be a parent. These little ones only belong to us for a little while.
    Thinking of you always. All of my love, Heidi
