School bus Reflecttions for Mellow Yellow Monday

Its beeen ten years now since I have been retired from teaching and the sight of yellow school buses rolling down the roads at the end of summer no longer stir me. They're just another sign that summer is 0ver. I always think of the youngest passengers on the buses and how excited they will be embarking upon their long adventure of education. May it be a journey filled with learning, excitement and may it be a fulfilling experience preparing them for the many roads they will travel down in their lifetime. Best wishes for all students and teachers for the coming school year. I do miss it a bit.

What a great picture and great words to go with it. Especially touching because today is my granddaughters first day of kindergarten.
Also I love your header. What a "catchy" title and the photo is amazing!

What a delightful shot, and it seems to me there's a bit of humor in that reflection. Love it!

Great photo. Love the school buses for sure but the reflection makes it so much more interesting.

Wonderful Mellow Yellow photograph (timely topic too). Luv the way you've captured the reflections in the hood of the blue car. This is my 9th year of retirement and I experience similar thoughts and feelings, but overall I'm glad to be meeting my retired friends for breakfast on the first day of school rather than meeting new students ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Well, congrats on your ten years!! I am entering my 4th year of retirement after 35 yrs of teaching and I, too, have to say watching the buses go by in the morning does stir some memories of how much I enjoyed teaching...but then I remind myself that I also like being retired and that there are still student perks to be had..as I head off to meet a few of my past students for breakfast or a walk with our cameras at our local park.

School started here a couple of weeks ago. Your "reflections"....both photo and writing are perfect. Good luck to all the kids and to the teachers and bus drivers for a great year.
