So, I was waiting at the bus stop for Wes. It had been like 5 minutes past drop off time. I called the school to see if the buses got off to a late start (they sometimes do) and they told me they were in the middle of calling parents because the bus has been in a accident! They immediately assured me that all the kids were find and told me where the bus was. I ran up to pick him up. It was only a few miles, but by the time I got there I was freaking out! Even though I knew he was ok! Then I get there and Wesley is crying. He was ok, just very scared. Apparently, the bus got rear-ended while dropping of some kids. Thankfully no one on the bus or in the car was seriously hurt. Wes and I are both still shaken up a bit. This whole ordeal brings me to the question I have had since I was riding the school bus WHY AREN'T THERE SEAT BELTS!!!!!!!! They practically make kids sit in a car seat until they can drive themselves, but they have no seat belts on school buses! Why? Thankfully, none of the kids in this accident were injured, but I am sure there are accidents all the time were kids are hurt or even killed! It just annoys me!
