Wheels on the Bus


We had a traditional  first day of school with our Wheels on the Bus theme.  It was a celebratory send off for several of our TT graduates that are moving up  to big kid school.  We read some stories about first day of school and then got on the big yellow for a tour around Oatland.  Thanks Mr. Max the bus driver!

No, that wasn’t the bus we took around the property, but don’t you think that would be useful here at our center?  I can see fun hayrides… If anyone has pictures from that day, could you send them forward because I didn’t bring my camera with me.  Mr. Max taught us about bus safety and then with a little help from Pete the Cat we sang the classic song  Wheels on the Bus while touring Oatland’s property on our big yellow school bus.

At the end of the class we had certificates for the little ones who graduated.  I sure will miss my regulars: Paloma, Chloe, Grayson, and Alice!  Don’t forget to visit me as much as possible!
