A grandfather in Gladstone, Oregon, bought a unique gift for his grandchildren this Christmas: a school bus.
Doug Hayes decided about six months ago, according to a Dec. 20 post shared by his wife, Amy Hayes, on his Facebook page, to buy a school bus so he could take his grandchildren to school. “We’d sing songs, talk, and it would be something unforgettable they did with their grandfather,” his wife, Amy Hayes, quotes him in the post.
Hayes, who has 10 grandchildren, named the bus the “Grandfather Express.” He began taking some of his grandchildren, who attend a small, private school that doesn’t have school bus service, to school in January. (Five of Hayes’s grandkids aren’t old enough to attend school yet, but two more will be old enough to ride the bus next year). Hayes told CNN that after seeing his grandchildren getting dropped off by their parents at their school in their cars, in the car line every day, that the kids said they would like to have a school bus.
Now that’s a great Christmas gift and even greater idea !!
