Want to know the downside of sending your kids to a great Catholic school?
Want to know the upside of not putting your kids on a bus?
Spending those ten minutes with them in the car each morning.
I used to look at the morning drop off as just another box to check on my to-do list. Getting seven kids ready in the morning and packed into my van to drop them off at school and daycare was a lot of work. And then I had to go to actual work which started at 7:15 am. When the daycare drop off ended, and they all went to school it was like a weight was lifted. When I switched jobs and didn't have to be at work until 8 am it was like another weight lifted. These days I am down to driving the last three guys (not so little, but still my littles) to school in the morning.
