In this part 2 of my story,I take you to the present.
But first a few more thoughts on my start.
Our son had started Gr.1 in September,this meant that now he and I left home together in
the morning ad came home together in the evening.
We did not need a sitter and I was earning some extra money as well.
That first year I drove a van which had been converted to be a school bus.
I still felt that this would be a temporary job,although
I did enjoy the driving and the extra money.
I am still a bus driver.
I have upgraded my license several times,and now hold a Class 2.
I have also had countless hours of training through the years.
From a 15 passenger van to today's bus able to carry 72 students.
For the last several years i have had the privilege of having an in town route.
After years of navigating muddy,snowy and just plain miserable roads,
this is quite a treat.
some funny,some sad,and many just plain frustrating.
Some years ago at the urging of my fellow drivers,
I started putting some of these things on paper.
Since I am not an author it is not super great,but it does tell the story
of the life of school bus drivers.
Maybe some day I will share some of these stories.
For now I give God the Glory for giving me this job,
and allowing me to do it for all these years.
I also Praise Him for keeping me safe on the road and accident free.
Before they call I will answer;while they are still speaking I will hear.
