sunday school and mellow yellow monday




























last sunday we went to brooklyn to visit my mother-in-law's birthplace in williamsburg. as we exited the brooklyn queens expressway we passed through a jewish neighborhood and found ourselves traveling behind this bus. this is probably the first time I was happy to have to wait for a bus to make all of its stops. while waiting, we got to see all of the children happily running for the bus to go to school as their mothers stood waving goodbye from the sidewalk and their younger siblings waved from picture windows. the children looked absolutely adorable in their black and white clothing with their sweet curls hanging down the sides of their angelic faces. very large old brick homes stood side by side with a canopy of trees lining the street. the whole scene looked like something out of a movie.  
today is mellow yellow monday. please visit drowsey monkey if you'd like to add your own bit of yellow mellowness.

I see the same scene in the Midwood neighbiorhood of Brooklyn, Lily. So many large families live there.

PS: There was a small ferris wheel at the festival..and lots and lots of food! :)

That bus certainly stands out in a crowd. It's interesting how yellow is the choice color for school buses in the US. Love your description, too. Enjoy the day!

What would we do with the yellow bus!

Eh, looks like quite a nice view. :) Would certainly love a yellow bus every day at the same time. Sad that we don't have any with the same colour. :(
