Day One - Waving goodbye on the first day of school

The high school bus route now goes down our street! Dale and I enjoyed standing on the front porch and waving at our son as the bus went by this morning. No better way to make your teenage son smile on his first day of school, right?

  4. You have made the news down here in Australia!

    What an awesome idea you had mate, well done. I love all the photos and I bet that your son did too. (Though he probably won't admit it).

    I hope you do another 170 days.

    All the best

  11. I looked at every single photo and they are all great. I doubt he'll need therapy (your donation fund). I bet he has a wonderful sense of humor and will make some of the same great memories with his children!

    Thank You!

  14. These were AWESOME. The photos are freaking hilarious and the comments are fantastic too! We're sharing this all over FB and have submitted this blog to Tots & Giggles (hope they pick it up!). And we are complete costume and Halloween nuts at this house too; we do a haunted asylum ever year for the neighborhood. Let me know if you ever need help coming up with any costume ideas, it's my specialty! Best of everything to you and your family!! <3

  39. LOVE the pictures! You, sir, are an awesome father!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Awesome....actually made me a little misty. Every dad loves their kids, but it is hard to come up with good ways to show them how much you do. You sir, have taken the cake!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I looked at all your pics! OMG that is so much fun! I am sure you are a great dad. Congrats on the blog and lots of love to your family from Peru :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. This is so awesome, I just had to put it on my blog! Kudos, Mr and Mrs. Price! A big shoutout to you from Malaysia!

    ReplyDelete
  43. This just proves that event the smallest things you do for your kids count and that being a dad is an everyday job and not the first and last day of school task.
    Great Job Dad (and mom for taking the pics)!

    ReplyDelete
  44. This is indeed the best news I have seen in a long while. The world needs more people like you. I loved all the pictures, great job Dad (and Mom)! thanks for the smiles. Your friend in Pennsylvania

  45. Best blog EVER!!! Love this. Thanks so much for sharing your daily efforts. :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Thank you thank you thank you for the laughter and smiles. And for being a demonstration of what family is really all about - embarrassing the heck out of our kids, and knowing they'll laugh about it later ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  47. My friend Dorcas posted her blog about this, and ohmy, you are great! I'm enjoying every single day. Amazing and funny.

    Thank you for making my day.

    ReplyDelete
  48. very creative indeed. every picture is priceless. great job awesome dad.

    ReplyDelete
  49. You've got my vote as World's Coolest Dad! How long did it take Rain to get over the "teenager" embarrassment?
    I'll bet that before long EVERYONE on that bus was looking forward to see what you'd come up with and every kid secretly wishing he/she had a Dad like you!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Thanks for the laughs! I'm impressed at the dedication here. That's a lot of early mornings standing outside! Way to be an involved dad spreading some love!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Three words: BEST. DAD. EVER. !!!

    ReplyDelete
  52. So cool, Dad! And Mom too for taking all the pictures. What fun! My family loved it. Wow! Have a great summer!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Very creative. Not only did you come up with a great idea but you followed through. Great job!

    ReplyDelete
  54. This is awesome! You should get paid to do this!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Thank you for your dedication to make people smile every day :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. How did you even come up with the idea of blogging this? Was it a planned dedication for the year or just happenstance?

    ReplyDelete
  57. This was awesome. Congrats on making national news!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Great idea from wonderful Dad (and Mom off course). Rain certainly has something wonderful to smile about whenever he sees a school bus forever in his life.

    ReplyDelete
  59. This is fabulous! I'm going to go look at all the pictures now. I love your sense of humor. :)

    ReplyDelete
  60. This was a wonderful project. I enjoyed every pic. Such dedication to do it every day for an entire school year. All of the kids on that bus will remember it for the rest of their lives and smile. What better gift is there?

    ReplyDelete
  61. So creative! I can't believe you came up with something new every day. Dad of the year for sure! Love your kids' names too.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Fabulous. My kids say I embarrass them. What little they know.
    What a great job! I liked the politically incorrect ones the most. My favorite was the Saudie oil merchant.

    ReplyDelete
  63. What a lifetime of fond memories your children (and all their schoolmates) will have, long after you're gone! Congratulations on a job well done! The world needs more dads like you.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Congrats on finishing the year! I laughed out loud through the whole blog!! GREAT idea! I would have DIED if that were my dad (for the first few days at least...and then i just would have wondered what on earth he'd come up with next!)

    ReplyDelete
  65. I loved looking through your entire blog and a year of hard work...it was wonderfully orchestrated. I loved seeing the progressing of costumes and creativity throughout the year.

    This, is love.

    And embarrassment.

    With a huge dose of awesome.
