Kids all started school yesterday and it went pretty smoothly. As expected Marie was too nervous to eat much. She did great though as I knew she would. She didn't get to meet any girls her age that live near us but she did get to know a boy in her grade and his sister who is a junior in high school. Yes you got that right. They decided to save some money (ROFLMBO) and combine some middle and high school buses. The problems that I thought would come about from that were not as I thought, but they did find on the stop right after hers that they had underestimated how many kids would be riding. According to the schedule there are two more stops after Marie's but they couldn't get those kids because the bus was overflowing. (I really thought there would be bullying from the high school kids but turns out they were the nice ones it was the eighth graders who did all the bullying) So to solve this in the afternoon, they picked up the middle schoolers and delivered them home then went back to pick up the high school kids.

I'm actually excited about going in and staying for most of the day. Hopefully if I am able to help them out like this in a year or two when the economy gets back on track and they can hire again I'll have my foot in the door.
Have a great week!
