    Oh my, another accident involving our loves! So glad to hear that the injuries were of a minor nature. Once again, bus accident during rush hour like conditions. Statistically, well…. we read of it every day. I’m not sure what we can do to make our children any safer. Excellent chauffeurs, safe busses, compliance to regulations….life as we know it, full of uncertainties?? The unexpected is part of life. You never know when that anomaly is out there.

    I have gotten lots of caring people calling me to make sure that I was okay. I, Miss Kat, was not the driver. I hope all the people involved are okay. Thank you for your kind thoughts!
