Whitney got a new bus driver a couple weeks back. He's a nice enough guy but he's never driven a route that picks up kids for special needs classes. Needless to say he's had a few new experiences over the last couple weeks.
One day when the bus picked Whit up at the house, Melanie mentioned that Whitney enjoys listening to music on the ride to school. It helps pass the time during what is almost an hour ride. The driver was worried about this because he might not be able to hear the kids if something bad happened.
Finally last week the driver realized that the kids were doing great and decided to give the radio a try. Later that day, when he dropped Whitney off at the house, the driver was concerned. He asked Melanie if maybe she could send a toy for Whit to play with on the bus because she had been screaming for most of the ride.
Melanie just smiled knowingly and agreed to send a toy. She wasn't concerned about the screaming because we know Whitney loves the bus. She's told us so on several occasions. The screaming the bus driver had heard was actually Whitney happily singing along to the music on the ride home.
