Pretty Yellow School Bus

I'm sure if you are reading my post, then you have already read or are going to read Chatty Kelly's post today but just in case, Go to Chatty Kelly for a fun back to school song. (practicing those linking skills!)

I tried to come up with a fun soundtrack for the other side of the album (8 track, cassette, CD, Vinyl) and the theme song from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang kept popping into my head. It's not as well known as the song from Grease to most people, but we watched Chitty Chitty Bang Bang EVERY SINGLE DAY for about a year around here when Alberquando was about 4 years old so we're still singing the songs.

Oh, You, Pretty yellow school bus,
Pretty yellow school bus we love you.
And, that, pretty yellow school bus,
Pretty yellow school bus loves us too.
Near, far, I don't need my car, to take them off to school today.
Bus, Bus, Pretty yellow school bus,
We know you know the way!
Bus, Bus pretty yellow school bus,
We know you know the way!

Bus, Bus, Pretty yellow school bus,
Our fine four fendered friend!
Bus, Bus, Pretty Yellow school bus...

There's only one problem....our fine four fendered friend was really really late....so I took them in the car after all. haha. I passed the pretty yellow school bus on the way home.

No big deal. School is less than 2 miles away. I was smiling the whole way there AND THE WHOLE WAY BACK HOME!

Yes, Yes, I'll miss them.......sorry, actually, I won't. I mean I love them more than anything in this world but as CK said, "Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder!" They'll be home today. They'll be tired, hungry, have books that need covered, papers to be filled out, lists of MORE supplies they need, and projects already assigned. I WILL be glad to see them. We'll talk about their day. They'll eat everything in sight (that reminds me, I need to go to the grocery store), they'll hang out, do homework, make phone calls, go outside and play kickball, watch tv, play on computer, eat dinner, do whatever, go to bed AND THEN........WE GET TO DO IT AGAIN TOMORROW!!!! YEA!!!!

Our Fine Four Fendered FRIEND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

LOL - Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is an all-time favorite of my (28 yr old) daughter's so I know that one better than Grease. I have the movie and when my daughter was a little girl she watched this show over and over so that she could learn how to do the bamboo dance. She learned it too! She has always been good at dance.

Anyway, I loved your version, made me laugh. :)

I did another Google search on my middle name and found it in Wikipedia's list of Miss USA Winners. Ha!

That was Truly Scrumptous. (cultural reference to Chitty Chitty Bang Bang).

We have Chitty Chitty B.B and watch it all the time now. It is the longest movie ever! Sometimes we only watch until "intermission" and then watch the other half the next night.

Yesterday Gabi saw the Sound of Music for the first time.

Why are you still reading this? I thought you had groceries to get?

I hope Jeremy and Jemima got to school themselves. More happy memories! (I'm recovered from the boo-hoo's I had earlier.)

As for the lateness of the bus, the driver must have come across a lot of tailgating woo-hoo/boo-hoo parents, taking photos as if their kids were on the red carpet. I'm just always wishing for the kids to sit down and get safely to school. If I had taken D#2's picture on her bus this morning, that would have been the end of her bus ride!

Well...your big boys, I'm sure, we're so glad to have Mom see them off in person, one more time.

(3 hours or so 'til snack time...hope you're back from the store!)

Here are you getting all fired (excuse the pun) up for back to school and we are winding down for our spring school holidays.

We have two weeks off in two weeks time and we are all ready for it. Third term is always the hardest. It's the longest, the worst weather, just the least funnest. We head back to school mid October for the final 10 weeks of the year then it's summer holidays! Yay!

I wish you blogged every day. I know that is impossible but it is just such fun to come over here.
