Bus ride

This mornings bus ride brought back a childhood memory.

I rode bus to school in 4the through 6th grade, being bused from South Tacoma, just feet from Fern Hill Elementary across town to Stanley Elementary on Hill Top.

They used old city buses, and we had a driver and an assistant who wanted to make the bus ride fun. She would drive over the train tracks at just the right speed so all the kids in the back would be bounced up out of their seats. They often brought candy. We had cup cake parties. She would sometimes do the route backwards for drop off…until too many parents complained.
