I don't think the boys were as excited as me about doing Dial a Book this way, but they were great about it! We took the #4 bus just one block from our house, and it dropped us off right across the street from the library.We got the book bags and flowers and waited about fifteen minutes for the #4 to take us back along the same route that goes right by the Timberhill Place Assisted-Living Facility (yellow building behind the black car).Then, we crossed the street and took it back to the library to drop off the bags of books they have already read. We used to have to go to multiple places throughout the city. So delivery by bus would have been impossible, but now they are all in one place! We took the #7 back so we didn't have to wait as long for the #4. I realized on route, it went by the place we usually eat at for lunch (used to be a big motivator when they were 7 & 9 when we started doing it) during Dial a Book (something the boys were willing to forgo to see my dream of bus travel realized). So, we hopped off and walked there and ate inside for the first time! Then, we walked home (from where we got off the bus it was only one mile).

Doing the happy dance!
