Schoolbus for photohunter theme of school

Nothing speaks of'school to me as much as the image of a schoolbus. I did this painting of a schoolbus several years ago when I saw this bus to on my way to school each day. I was a teacher and I followed it to school each day. For a few years this painting hung in the office of the high school where my husband taught.Yes, we were a family of teachers, Today our eldest son is a teacher as is our daughter-in-law also.. As a mother of three children, how well I remember those first days of starting school for them and waiting and watching for the schoolbus. Just this week we repeated that ritual of waiting for the scoolbus as we waited and watched while our little grandson, now a kindergarden student get off the bus when he returned home at the end of his schoolday.

HURRah for school buses!

I still remember the first day of school for my eldest, me trying not to cry so I wouldn't upset him.
