Children of bus No.34

"Children from Spring Creek Elementary wait to depart school on Provo School District bus No.34, Friday afternoon. Bus routes are getting cut, but some hazardous routes still remain. In addition, the Provo School District will no longer bus children who live less than two miles from school."

What can I say, I knew something was up when I saw "Reading Rainbow" on TV before leaving for work.

My editor let me know before my shift that I'd be riding on an elementary school bus during the after school drive home. I was really eager to get on the big yellow vehicle since I hadn't rode on a school bus as a student for at least a decade.

After sitting, chatting with the driver for 30 minutes waiting for the children to get out of school, it happened. The loud, wild, overly energetic kids were ready to go home after a long week of school.

I had a BLAST! But you don't have to take my word for it.

OK, well, maybe you do, or you can just look at my pictures above.

Between "Reading Rainbow" and riding on a school bus, it had me feeling totally nostalgic all day long.

Assignments like these almost let me relive past experiences, such as a being child in grade school. These assignments totally make this job unlike any other. I love it.
