the wheels on the bus

My sweet boy is officially riding the bus now.  Took me a wee bit longer to get adjusted than he did. The lift scared him the first day, but now he rides it like a champ!  I drove him to school the first few days, then followed the bus a few days. (yes, I was that mom!)  On Thursday I just left a note in his folder for his teachers to call me and let me know how he did (they are amazing like that!). My stomach was in knots not knowing but I knew the teacher would call me soon.  I then got a text from my rockstar hubby that said, "I may or may not be sitting in the school parking lot!" Love him.  So he was able to report yet another successful bus trip! He is doing amazing now all by himself.

Love that my awesome neighbor, Sydney, captured the first bus day on film.

His face is simply joy.
 Here comes the bus! 
We can do this buddy!  Proud of you Abe.

Hi! I have followed your blog since back in 2008 when we began our adoption process - we adopted from Ethiopia as well. So I have followed your story of Abe since God chose him for your family. So exciting to see him taking off with this new phase of his life. What a precious and happy little guy he is! Blessings to your family!

I also LOVE his smile! These pictures look so familiar and remind me of when we put Ruby on the bus for the first time. I also followed her to school :) You are not alone! Hope his first days are great!
