bus domestic

I have to say this is one of my favorites so far. Probably because the colors pop beautifully on my new gray family room walls and because it has special significance. People asked how I got the shot. Well it just so happens one of the people I used to visit teach 9 years ago in Virginia drives a school bus (thanks A.P.!) and she gracious agreed to park it in her driveway so I could get the study shot. But what’s even cooler is that this bus is from the county where I used to teach school- (yes that’s cut off in the painting but I know what the bus really says) yes back in the day when I was Miss Whyte 1st grade teacher. I taught at a darling rural school and every afternoon we’d walk our classes out to the bus. All the kids from other classes would say hi and hug you as you they walked by. We’d and wait while they loaded on and then wave goodbye to all the kids as the 4 buses pulled away.

Now I am on the other side waiting with my 3 yr old from the bus to come afternoon to return my 2 boys from school. (although truth be told when its snowy I wave to the bus driver as he drives past and stay in the warm confines of my entryway! )

we've been waiting

Awesome, Leslie. And such a great idea. There's just not enough school bus yellow on living room walls these days. . . .
