Bus Hours Saved SO Far!!!

Tuesday, September 20, 2005
Hold onto your seats kids. Public school has been back about 15 days and I have calculated how many hours my daughter has NOT ridden the bus in those days.

45 minutes one way (in good weather, good traffic)
1.5 hours/day
15 days equals 22.5 hours.

we have not wasted 22.5 hours of my daughter's life riding the bus, doing nothing educational and essentially being forced to sit still and blank out.

What a major bonus of homeschooling!

  • That's one of the many reasons we started homeschooling. We used to live way out in the country, and the kids - from kindergarten - would have a fourty minute bus drive. When they get old enough to go to high school, the nearest one took an hour and a half on the school bus. Each way.

  • Yeah, so you totally understand!

    I used to ride the bus like that and I swore I would never ride the damn bus again (LONG bus rides in Texas without air conditioning), why should I make my child suffer the same?
