(Christian and Ozzy playing in the creek)
Sunday we spent a few hours at our favorite place on Craig Creek. The water is really high right now which doesn't leave a lot of open area for hanging out. Hopefully by the next time we go the water will be down to its normal levels. We've just been having a ton of rain, which is good so I'm not complaining, really I'm not!
Yesterday there was a bus crash in our county, Botetourt. As soon as I heard about a bus crashing I texted Christian to make sure he was in school as I knew it was a bus carrying middle school and high school children but that was all I knew at the time. Christian texted back that he was. Ashlyn drives herself to school so I knew she was fine. Christian chooses to ride the bus, even though they attend the same school but his sister makes him late if he rides with her. She gets that from me.
As the story developed we learned that there were 39 children on the bus. The bus overturned 2 or 3 times (conflicting stories on this) and landed on its top. 13 children were taken to the hospital, none with life threatening injuries, thank God! The bus driver has been charged with reckless driving. I can't imagine how scary that must have been for the kids. You can see pics of the accident here and read about a remarkable little guy who kept a calm head and helped get the students off the bus!
