was supposed to start on Monday, but the authorities decided to
change it to tomorrow, and we only learned those
we have not found a driver. We had three prospects
- one had an expired license, one couldn't drive, and the other
one was not available during the day.
have paid for driving school for about 5 people, and yet, I'm the
only one on our base with a license. And I do not have a choice
but to get in the car and drive them myself.
years ago I had to do that as well for a season - but it was fewer
children, only one school, and that school was pretty close, and
it was only back and forth once a day - and I ended up having a
physical breakdown after three months. Today, we have 22
kids in 5 different schools, and they come home for lunch,
and go back in the afternoon. Driving our kids is therefore a full-time
job that starts at 6:30 in the morning and ends at 7 pm.
sure I do not have to underline any more the importance of us finding
a driver. I won't be able to do anything but driving, and already
the rising heat has taken a toll on my energy levels. It's
imperative for us to find a driver as quickly as possible!!!
