My New "Rig" - courtesy of Ryan



So I watch a little boy named Mark before and after school and drop him off/pick him up at the bus stop as well. I was mentioning how it was getting really hard to get all the kids to the bus stop one day to Ryan, and a couple hours later, he came home with another double stroller. He used conduit pipe, bolts, screws, washers, etc. to hook two double strollers together. Now I can fit up to 6 kids in the big stroller if I need to! It's so awesome! It's a really good workout, too!

He took the above picture of me pushing it back from the bus stop for the first time (loaded with 6 kids, I might add). Do I look tired? I was sweating buckets, I'm sure!

I've gotten the strangest looks from people as I'm walking to the bus stop. One guy said, "You have to be babysitting - no way can all those kids be yours!" Another said, "You've sure got your hands full!" All the moms at the bus stop want Ryan to make one for them too!

Anyways, those of you who know Ryan will appreciate this "rig" and those of you who don't will probably just laugh because I'm sure it looks quite ridiculous. Either way, Ryan rocks for doing this for me!

Wow! I'm impressed! Both with Ryan for listening to you and then making it and also with you for being able to push it loaded with kids in 110 degree heat! I think I might drive by one of these days so I can see you in action! hehe..

I had no idea you had a blog...Love it!

I just wonder if you are planning to fill that with your own kids? Just add a set or two of twins and you have it full.
