Last weeks within hours of each other they both posted pictures of their new rides for the summer.
|Kayla's new summer ride!|
However it then got me thinking about the school van I was able to pack too much luggage in and all of the students as I headed out for COLT yesterday. Driving a school van is not like a fancy company truck or SUV. The liability and stress of driving seven other students is much higher than if I was just driving myself. The fact that I must coordinate leave times, restroom stops, and destinations to eat with seven other people is more of a challenge than if I was in the industry calling on customers.
Do you hear the BUT coming?
BUT - It all starts in a FFA Van. Both of the above students and several other ones along the way have learned to be on time, get along with others, travel, explore, and respect the property of others. I am proud of my past students that I have traveled with and the beginning of the journey with my new students. The FFA Van is where it all begins.
