Yesterday we rode the bus to school!
To quote Olivia,"Lisa, guess how I got to school today?! The City Bus!!!!"
They loved it! We spent a blissful 1/2 hour looking out the window at people and trucks and landmarks we recognized. When we switched buses downtown we stood up against a building and soaked up some sunshine while the bus driver took his 2 minute break. The bus comes right to our corner (They loved sitting on the bus stop bench), we switched downtown and took it a few more blocks to the Co-Op (which is only a block away from school).
I was not looking forward to this little adventure but I am pleasantly surprised at how...well...pleasant it was.
We plan on doing it once or twice a week for the next few weeks that school is in.
