...have I mentioned that Scout's school is only 1.5 miles from our house?... we thought...AWESOME...right?...

...that is until I started taking him to school each morning and going back to pick him up each afternoon...

...guess how long each 3 mile round trip takes...

...45 minutes...YIKES!... we had a little talksie...about wasting that amount of time each day...and that amount of gas...and all of the polution that causes...

...and now Scout rides the bus (for the first time in his life)...and he likes it!


  1. wow! how cool! my kids liked the bus also. by the time they were in high school, marching band made it difficult at least during the fall. he'll be driving himself before you know it! love, k

  2. Wow! I can't imagine taking that long to go such a short distance though I know it happens in bigger places. I'm glad Scout likes the bus. I wouldn't want to "waste" time on all that travelling either.

  3. Wait...what?! 45 minutes for 1.5 miles? I will never complain about our commute to school again even when it's across town next year. Scout is a trooper and I love that shot of the bus!

  4. New times and new experiences.

  5. wow, that's crazy the drive takes so long! My kids hate the bus so I bring them and pick them up. This year with them at different schools and different start times, I sometimes feel like I'm in the car all day.

  6. I can see how it would take that long. I see and hear about the long lines to drop off then pick up students. The school bus ride will make friends and save time. MOM
