We had a wicked thunder storm this morning, right around the time that Wallene had to walk to the bus stop to catch a ride to school.
I had a few problems with this because - 1. The bus stop is three blocks away. 2. We only have one car and Pooldad had it at work so I couldn't drive her. 3. This was a horrendous storm with a lot of lightening and torrential rain. 4. We live in a tree filled neighborhood and her bus stop is right beside a huge electrical box [think metal], both conductors for lightening.
Not to mention an umbrella is not an option. Metal tip anyone?
So, like any good mother, I
let made her stay home. :)
Bonus! YAY! Three day weekend!
Except - I had to call the school and give them an excuse for her absence. After the Super Bowl debacle - I just decided to tell them she was "under the weather."
That's not a lie, right? heehee
Have a good one Tadpoles. See ya' on the flipside.
