It was a hectic time when the bus finally did arrive with kids running to and fro, changing places and generally finding they could easily give us the slip.
As the bus arrived, Alice began waving to it.
In the excitement of seeing Grandpa, Porter dropped Gordon’s coal-tender as he got off the bus.
In the meantime, unbeknownst to me, Alice had jumped off Grandpa’s lap and made a mad dash down the hill for the bus. Porter had to dodge her in order to have a clear shot at Grandpa.
After shaking off Alice, he made a beeline for Grandpa, who was waiting with outstretched arms.
Then Porter circled around, enjoying being outside in the sunshine.
Practicing balancing on the curb, which he does faithfully every day.
