Rain is a sophomore in high school, and Dad thought it would be fun to embarrass his son by waving to him as the bus came back by. After that first day, Dale Price, the Dad, thought it would be fun to embarrass his 15 (now 16) year-old-son, a little more, and what began as a lark turned into a daily prank.
Every day of the school year, Price, who has a prosthetic leg, has dressed in a different costume and has stood outside to wave to the passing bus. Rain, was a little put out at first, but he inherited his Dad's sense of humor and says it has become a morning entertainment for him and his fellow bus riders to see what Dad has come up with for a costume today!
Here are a few of the sights the bus riders have been greeted by during this school year:
This must be Captain America!
And the Grand Finale for the last day of school!
Mrs. Price started taking photos of her husband as he waved to the bus and created a blog called, appropriately, Waving to the Bus. Click on the link if you want to see more.
I have to say I so loved the whole idea that I took the time to go through every post of that blog, look at every photo, and I read every clever quote, poem, or comment that she chose to go with each photo. This whole thing smacks of so much family love! And what wonderful memories Dale Price has created for his son, Rain. I hope that boy realizes how lucky he is to have parents who care so much.
