The Wheels on the School Bus Go Round and Round

This morning, Rachel, Murphy's mom, and I decided to take a stab at carpooling. Rachel would take Murphy and Ray to "school" and I would pick them up. It would shave off a half hour (at least) from both of our commutes. At 7:15, I peeked out the door and saw Rachel leaving her house. I quickly slipped Ray's collar on over his ears, grabbed his "lunch" and walked him to the end of the driveway to wait for Rachel.
Rachel pulled up, the huge grin on her face mirroring the one on on mine. I opened the back door of the car and Ray eagerly climbed into the back seat, happy to be going where ever his friend was going.
I handed Rachel, Ray's bag of treats. "Here's his lunch," I said grinning. "What a spoiled dog," she replied. "Make sure you tell them that I'll be picking up Murphy," I said. "Maybe I should write a letter." We were both laughing and joking around, the situation of our "kids" going to the same school and carpooling just struck us as hilarious. Maybe it was just the hour.
