In any given week how much time do you spend driving your kids to school and activities?  How does that make you feel?  Could you use that drive time for something else or do you love that one on one time with your kids?

Last year I spent about 4-5 hours a day in the car between driving my two special needs kids across the city to school and all their therapies. This year, all of my kids are getting bus service!! I'm so freaking excited!

Luvmybooskies to be so close to the field he plays soccer and only one time a week close to home must be helpful.  Hopeful also easier for you to get to his games with the other two kids so you can enjoy watching.

 well the only reason i drive them to school is that i work at their school.  if i didn't work at their school they'd take the bus. 

my son has gymnastics twice a week at the rec center.  in the fall my daughter will have irish band twice a month & then various concerts throught out the year so not sure how much driving i'll be doing for that.  i do get tired of the driving but it's for a good cause, activities my children really enjoy doing! ;o)
