the lazy river...

Yesterday I was able to get a trip to a small water park around 45 minutes from here. Because of budget cuts these trips are rare and when they do happen more senior drivers scoop them up. My group was small 25 kids with 7 adults. We took a country route as too many of the main roads in Illinois are under construction. My group was both mellow and well behaved...making the ride a pleasant one.

Two other drivers were there, one is friend so she and I took advantage of the break and headed in the pool for free!

An hour and half on the lazy river was an awesome treat...plus we got paid too!

I love my job!

Sports trips are around the corner...with golf, volleyball and soccer up first and football at the end of August...hopefully I won't have too many driver steal my thunder!

I've got a vacation in Florida to save up for!! :)

What fun! Who do you drive for if you dont mind me asking... Not the name but the kind of place of course.

My name is Sherry and I wanted to come by and introduce myself as I have joined the Bloggerette Sorority. I am new to the blog world (3 weeks!) so I missed the Rush, but I look forward to joining in on the fun in the future. I would be honored if you would come by my blog for a visit at http://scrappingwithsherry1.blogspot.com/ Hope to see you there.

Take Care~ Sherry

I never really thought about school bus drivers working in the summer but I guess you are needed then too for sure. Your Florida trip will be wonderful. I hope you get the work. It makes it really nice when you get benefits like the Lazy River thrown in!

Glad all is well! The budget cuts in the schools are just ridiculous, this is not going to be a fun year for me.

Can't wait for your trip to Florida! Time for another blogger beach bash - whoo-hoo!

Have a great weekend Rose :-)
