I looked around at the other parents, a number of whom have become friends. I took in the loud excited energy, unique to a busload of seven-year olds.

While we were on the freeway, we pulled up next to a semi-truck. The kids yelled, "Horn! Horn! Horn!" and pumped their arms. The truck driver was kind enough to blow his horn for them. The kids lost their minds, screaming and cheering.
