Saturday morning at 8:00 am.sharp, my son Jacob and I were at Ozark High School, ready to make the trip to St Louis. Four buses were scheduled to leave at 9:00 am. Jacob was curious to see what bus I was going to be a chaperone (police patrol) on and was relieved when I wasn't assigned to his bus. One hour and forty-five minutes later we hit the road.
They separated the boys and the girls on different buses to prevent any catastrophes. I choose a girl bus because I wanted to experience what it would be like to have a daughter. We had two wonderful boys but there has always been this longing for a girl. Things were going great! It was so much fun having a daughter (for a day) and it really did make me feel young and needed again.
After about 1 hour into the trip I started wondering if I had gotten more than what I had bargained for. These girls were really needy! Several girls were mad at their boyfriends and several girls were upset because their best friend said something about them that they shouldn't have. By the end of the trip I was glad it was only for a weekend.
Would I do it again? Yes, it was just great! I don't know if I will stay with the girls or switch to the boy bus next time but I will definitely do it again. They competed at the St. Louis Dome and placed 11th, they just looked fabulous!
