Despite the gloomy weather, everyone enjoyed the adventure. Many of the kids, including Little Man, were very impressed by the police escort we had leading us, controlling traffic and keeping us safe all the way to school. Tonight at dinner the memory of congratulatory high-fives from a policeman as we reached the end of our journey was the biggest take-away from the day. "You know, he's a hero, Mama, and he was with us. It was the "awesomest" part. Oh, and also his car." I love that! :)
I saw on the news that many schools across the country did similar things. Did your family take part in a similar event? If so, please consider sharing your experience today in the comments below.
