Since the boys started school on the 20th, they have come home talking about how they were going to sit in the back of the bus with the neighbor girl. They had plans to get there and wanted to get on the bus to get to the back!
I remember being a kid, there was always something cool about the back of the bus. I have no idea why now, but it was usually reserved for older kids. You were further away from the driver I suppose and had more "privacy."
When they got on the bus the second morning for school at least there were already two boys in the very back of the bus, but there were several empty seats in front of them, so you can believe that's where my boys went!
