I met Mr. Fox a Saturday ago. He was the bus driver who took my students to Philadelphia.
He pulled the long bus in front of the center right on time.
The parents, students and staff got excited when they saw the bus. It made going to Philadelphia a dream come true!
The bus is here!! One person called out and that created an even greater excitement.
The news ignited the crowd. I walked downstairs to check on the volunteers who were making sandwiches. I could hear the children upstairs talking excitedly about the big, big bus out side. Their feet running to look out the door.
I went upstairs to where everyone was waiting and addressed the crow: Mary Mitchell!!
Here we are!! They responded.
Good Morning and thanks for coming! As you already know, the bus is outside! By the time my speech was over, everyone stood up and began to aboard the bus.
When I walked on the bus, Mr. Fox turned to me and said, “So, you are the lady in charge.”
“Yes. I am.” I responded.
“What you got planed for today?”
This began our relationship and set the tone for our trip. His wife, Mrs. Fox was there and assisted me almost like a mother assists a daughter. Never in the way, encouraging and there for support.
Needless to say, we had a safe and very successful trip.
I can’t wait to use Entertainment Express again!
