Giving Thanks - Day 5

Originally uploaded by Krheiser

Yesterday this little boy didn't get on the school bus like he was supposed to. The daycare called as soon as they discovered his absence and we started making phone calls. Calls to the school. Calls to his best friend's house, the little boy who lives less than a block from the school. Calls to the bus garage. Eventually, we got through to his best friend's dad and found out he had showed up there after school.

So, I am thankful we found him safe and sound at a friend's house last night.

I imagine he is not thankful for the grounding or the manual labor he will be performing all weekend to make up for his lapse of judgement.

But I'm thankful nothing bad had happened, that nothing more than little boy foolishness prevented him from riding the bus to the daycare.
