There is just something wrong with looking up the bus schedule for the new school year at the new elementary school and seeing that the pickup time is 6:48 AM!!!! That means we have to leave the house a little after 6:30 AM to walk down to the stop and wait. No 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, or 10-year-old should be walking down the street in the dark morning hours to wait for a bus while the high school students sleep in and get picked up around 9 am. It just isn't right!!!
I think this year we'll be driving to school in the morning. At least then we don't have to leave the house til 7:15.
