A 200 Yard Joy Ride

I took this picture from the bus stop. As you can see the school is literally across the street from the end of our road. Kind of silly that I drive to the end of the road to wait for the school bus when I could just as easily drive across the street and pick Hope and Joseph up at the curb.




So why don't I just drive across the street to pick them up from the school?

Because I have a little boy who climbed up into the Fed Ex truck last week and wouldn't come out until I came in after him. And I have a little girl who loves her brother a lot and who volunteered to sit with him and supervise him. All for the joy of riding in a massive yellow vehicle......

......a 200 yard joy ride but a joy ride nonetheless.

Ok, so if you ever get tired of Joseph, I'll take him!! He's so stinking precious. But then again, in pictures, he is STILL. Not sure I could handle him in real life!!! :) Thanks for the comment on my blog the other day... it was too sweet! :)

Oh my goodness -- that's too funny about the UPS truck! He sounds like such a fun child and I love hearing stories about his antics!
One of my kiddos is similarly mischievous and while it keeps us on our toes, we wouldn't change her for the world because her mischief is usually so darn entertaining!

I know he is a handful for you all but what a wonderful happy boy he seems to be :-) You were blessed.

I can't wait until they ride in the Grey Goose in Sacramento...

That is too funny! I LOVE his smile. In our school district if you live within 2 miles of school then you have to pay for bus-riders, unless they are a child with special needs. Pretty much the entire school boundaries are within 2 miles. kinda silly.
