We thought about skipping bus practice day yesterday. After all, Elizabeth and Matthew took a bus to camp earlier this summer and Elizabeth can quite easily teach Matthew the rules. However, Elizabeth insisted that it was a valuable experience Matthew needed to have so off we went at the duly appointed time. He declared it "fairly boring" but "important". Elizabeth just likes riding the bus so she had fun.
Mostly I think she wanted him to have a matching McDonald's bus safety placemat so he would quit coveting hers. They were pretty happy to get free ice cream coupons too!
