The bus showed up a bit early yesterday, and my neighbor wasn't at the bus stop yet, and so the driver wouldn't let her Kindergartener off. I told the driver I'd get my cell phone out of my car and try to call and get permission for the driver to just leave him with ME until his mom got there. We got the neighbor boy dealt with, and then Connor kept saying, "I can't find Jared!" I scanned the bus, looked all around where I was standing, etc. No Jared. Then I tried to call the school to see if he was there, but no one was answering the main line. Tried calling my friend from another stop to see if Jared had gotten off there on accident (we get off there on Fridays), but she wasn't answering either. I said I was just going to drive to the school and check for him, then figure out checking some other stops along the route. As the driver was pulling away, and as I was getting into my car, I noticed movement in the back seat of the van, and there was Jared, all buckled into his seat already, hugging our little dog, Charlie. LOL!!!!!! He must have gotten off the bus and into his seat in the van while the bus driver and I were dealing with the neighbor boy. hahahaha! My heart was racing trying to figure out where he could be, but I'm really proud of myself that I kept my cool and stayed calm. Funny that he was right where he was supposed to be the whole time!!!!
