The wheels on the bus

Our dear Alice made the next step in a series of firsts for our family. Taking the school bus! We waited outside for a few minutes and saw the Oiselets bus arrive, flashing lights and all. I was allowed one quick photo before she was shown to her seat and then they were off. This moment was a bit more emotional for me than the first day of school was, perhaps because everything is out of my hands now. Mum and Estelle will pick her up at Silvana's (the designated drop-off spot for when I am (hopefully) back at work) to see how it all went.

Waiting

Here it comes

Got my spot

Is it too late to change my mind? (Mum)

Oh my God! Alice qui prend l'autobus?! Je comprends parfaitement comment la maman doit se sentir, ayant moi aussi un nouvel écolier prenant le transport scolaire. Christophe a 5 ans (presque 6), et ça me fait un pincement au coeur, alors je ne peux qu'imaginer à l'âge d'Alice! Elle est bonne ta cocotte, la maman aussi.
