New career choice

So why did I want to go back to driving a school bus filled with screaming kids…well it was a hard decision but I did it anyway!

I’m at a point in my life where I just don’t want to work all day if I can help it. When you sign up for bus driving you have the option to work as little or as many hours as you like. I’m happy working 4 hours a day I can still get stuff done during the day and  pick up the kids from school in the afternoon.

When I signed up for this I didn’t expect to have to go through all the training again, boy was there a lot of training! I drove 13 years ago at that time a small town and basically had to get my Class 2 that’s it! Well driving in the city I had to renew my Class 2 and go for 2 weeks of training!

So they gave me a route in the city which I have to do as many turns as possible without forgetting any kids…Seriously! I’ve almost mastered it 🙂 Now besides the 2 way radio I have to pay attention to the kids also want the radio blasted so they can dance in the aisle. So it’s kinda like musical chairs when I turn the radio up they start moving around…then I turn it off and they all scramble to find a seat because they know they’re in trouble! 

It’s actually not that bad the kids are starting to listening to me.

Besides all this it’s a pretty good job for me. I have all weekends, Stats, Christmas, Spring Break and Summer off!
