Rest time was over at 2:45 and when I looked outside as we were getting ready to go outside to play I saw bumper to bumper cars & trucks. I figured it was an accident over on 42nd & Center Street and then I saw the police car at the end of my street (about 2 houses away) directing traffic. I heard police whistles and yells...
The police man didn't seem to concerned that I had the kids there and he was pretty relaxed so the kids brought all their cars outside and I took the car rug that I have and they set up a car area under the shade of our big tree out front and I watched the proceedings while I texted parents (I own an in-home daycare) and gave them suggestions on how to get to my house - and I also offered to keep the kids until later that evening.
THEN while Connor's mom was here we were sitting outside visiting and watching everything and a camera man & a news reporter from Channel 3 came up and asked to interview us. Melissa (Connor's mom) made me do the interview on my own (thanks Melissa!).
All in all.... It was a VERY interesting and busy day! What did YOU do?
