|Ready to drive into school!|
Each year we've "helped" Cam decide what to be for Halloween. This year, when asked, he emphatically indicated he wanted to be a bus.
It may sound a bit strange to some, but Cam has been riding a school bus ever since he was 2 and 1/2 years old. He loves his bus ride to school and home and we truly believe he's had the best, most caring drivers around!

We were quite pleased when the school schedule called for a record-marking day on Friday, meaning Cam had the day off of school and could sleep in.

Immediately following that fun venture, we headed over to our neighbor's home for dinner and the official neighborhood candy collecting!

|Cam's Bus all lit up!|
The weekend brought 'Auntie' Karen and Ms. Ann to visit and check out the now-famous Halloween creation. They remarked how awesome it was that Chris & Cam painted the bus, added the lights, and made a workable "whoa" sign. The best part was the bus simply "fit over" Cam's powerchair.
Jane's biggest contribution was finding the hat for her favorite boy on Amazon- it had a picture of a school bus with the caption "You Can't Scare Me- I Drive a Bus!"
In a culture where technology can take hold, we're thankful for simple traditions, creative minds, and happy kids who can gather together to head out on a cold Halloween night and participate in the candy trade afterwards!
