Matt - i feel with you on this one.
when our son was very young - ist grade maybe? - he missed his stop and didn't make it off the bus. our house was the 1st stop. we missed him and couldn't get any word of his whereabouts for over an hour while the bus finished its route. the driver was forbidden to backtrack from the established route so we were in limbo for over an hour. one of the worst hours of my life - ranking right after ... you know.
thank God your son (and mine!) are both OK - but what a trauma to the soul of the fathers and mothers!!!
take care of your self - be extra nice to you.
"Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself... And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second's encounter with God and with eternity." - Paulo Coelho
