Practice Makes Perfect

At least I hope it does.
You see,
I've been up since
4:30 a.m.

Yes, you read that right.
4:30 a.m.

Why you ask?
I am practicing!
A week from tomorrow,
that great big yellow thing
(commonly referred to as a bus)
will be arriving here
at 6:14 a.m. to
take my daughter off
to her first day of
her Senior year.

This really seems
like unfair treatment of a human being.

Oh well.
I was at least greeted
but this

6:15 pickup?! ugh!!!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Whoa, that's crazy early!

Raindrops and Daisies said...

That is a very very early start.

You will all be exhausted by the end of the school week.

Take care and lovely pic by the way.

I don't know why they start so early! One year mine got on the bus at 6:25, I thought it was a bit much.

Now, I get up for my dog or my bladder and enjoy sleeping in when I can - one perk (the only one) of being old.

I am on week three of getting up at 6 to get my grandson off to school. I'm tired!

Beautiful scene though in the am. And good luck to your daughter!

Melodie said...

4:30,ugggg! That sounds terrible...I bet your daughter is excited though,Senior year!

Why do they give teenagers these crazy school hours? My son's high school starts at 7:00 and ends at 1:45. We have to leave the house around 6:30 to get him there on time. He's always tired. Always.

Good luck!

Oh, boy! I'm yawning just THINKING about 4:30 AM!! (I used to get up at 4:15 AM for work, so I feel your pain!)

But that sunrise is a nice reward!

Samantha said...

That is CRAZY early!

Debbie said...

6:14 a.m. i might consider home schooling. that's just creul for both of you!!!

Madi and Mom said...

MOL Miss Jill if you have to get up before the chickens at least your morning should be in technicolor.
Hugs Madi

That seems way too early for kids to be picked up! The bus runs here for local kids around 6:50am, and I thought THAT was early! Wheew!

Bless your hearts!

I have to admit, that is a gorgeous sunrise!

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

Oh wow! That's the earliest I've ever heard of a bus picking up. Hope the school year is a good one for your daughter! Great sunrise photo!

Jackie said...

I would probably have to cry if I had to get up that early. you're a good mom :)
Love the pic !

Leontien said...


that big yellow thing will take your girl to a new phase of her life and she will LOVE it (i sure hope)!!!

i'm sending you big hugs!!! and i sure hope you were allright after that accident and the rude policemen!

Michaele said...

Cruel and unusual punishment I say. Now you have to go to bed at like 7:30 p.m.

Betsy said...

Well, the sunrise is beautiful anyway! But that is an ungodly hour! lol....

Jenny Woolf said...

Oh what a fabulous sunrise. Maybe I'd have preferred to see it in real life if it had been a sunSET though ! :)

I hope she enjoys school. But 6.14 AM is ....cruel!

Ellie said...

6.15am. Is that not the middle of the night!!!! Painful.

Kerri said...

My daughter just started her 2nd year of college - but I remember that bitter sweet senior year very well.

Beautiful sunrise thru the trees :)

Jill from Killeny Glen said...

Hi JILL! Had to come visit another Jill. Oh dear...that bus comes VERY, VERY early!

How are the new kitchen appliances coming along??

Donna said...

Uggggg....I hate "early"! Have to do it every day...
The school year will pass SO fast Girl! Enjoy it!
I miss my kids school years!

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

I'm always up that early! Makes for an early bedtime though. :)
