Chocolate Cover Crispies
Sophie made it through day one! Besides a little bus mishap, she really liked school... although she's refusing t0 ride the bus the remainder of summer school (which only lasts 2 weeks and is purely for fun). The regular bus driver doesn't do summer school and the new one completely missed our bus stop and turned a block early. I had to get into the car and quickly chase the bus. I finally got it to stop a few blocks away by honking. I jumped out of the car, ready to kick the drivers butt, and told him he forgot my child. He told me he would have gotten her home eventually! Needless to say, she was terrified. I promised her I would drive her to school and pick her up and she was excited to go back today. No tears at all. The reason for her crying yesterday morning was because she hated not knowing anyone on the bus. She said she will ride the bus come fall when school starts again because Makayla will be there to share her seat.
If I'm not making sense today it's because I've been awake since 2:45 am. We had to drive my husband to the air port early this morning to catch a plane to California. Brad will be gone until Friday night. He went for his little sisters graduation. This is his first time flying and he was a wee bit scared! This is also the first time he has been away from home. The kids are going to miss him. That's why I'm bribing them to be good with these no bake bars. They're super yummy!
