How I Made a Difference on December 14,2007

Today I made a difference by being a kindergarten bus helper.

Even though I am a bus helper all school year round, it is especially challenging in the winter because I have to help my kindergarteners get dressed to go outside at the end of the school day. Usually, I have to move fast, and do you know that kindergarteners like to be dressed a certain way? They do. Ryan likes his boots on first and then he likes to stick the bottom of his pants in his boots perfectly. He always keeps starting over if they are not “done right.” Felicia has to have her coat zippered all the way up to her chin and she looks like a little eskimo in her coat.

Today, I helped Ryan because he was a little behind on getting ready to leave. Usually I have five kids to take care of, but today I only had four because Felicia was sick. This gave me a little more time. Some kids get overwhelmed taking care of little kids, but I really like it.

 My kindergardeners names are Ryan, Callan, Angela, Felicia and Luke. I also am a bus helper in the morning when I go to school. I get to count kids and help the bus driver. I really like my bus driver.

  2. Oh that’s awesome!! As a mommy of a kindergartner it is especially nice to hear that other kids help them out. I’m always so worried about her!

    Today Gabby, Bree and Jake helped celebrate a friends b-day! That one wasn’t a tough one to complete. In fact I think they really liked it! I made a difference for my family by cleaning the house! 🙂

    Have a great day!

  6. I am so glad that you are a bus kid I think just by reading this that i like Felica the best!!

  7. WOW – you want to send a package to CJ? I am honored and touched…

    If you send it to arrive before 1/2 probably the best thing to do is to send it to our house and then he can take the goodies with him..

    I am so impressed with your generosity…

  9. Haven’t been keeping up on my blog well, so let me post here – yesterday I made a difference by being super good in the supermarket parking lot – people had abandoned some carts in the snow/slush blockign close spots, so after I parked dd and I brought a couple up to the building…today we gave coins to a salvation army bell ringer in front of the ShopRite.

  10. Jim–there are lots of bus helpers!

  11. I know just how particular little children can be about the way that they are dressed. You must be a very patient girl.
