2017 Sarah’s March Story (cont.)
Yesterday I told you all of my kiddo missing the 2017 march because they didn’t hand in their homework. What I didn’t say is I almost missed the march too. Sometimes following through with consequences with kiddos means parents share those consequences. Kiddo was my second driver to DC. Without a second driver, the plan to drive down was squashed. I was one of those last minute folks pleading for a seat on a bus to DC. I am such a helpful organizer. Don’t be like 2017 Sarah G.
Because I waited to the last minute, I also didn’t get the nice shared cost seating that assumed we filled all the seats on every bus. I opened my wallet for a donation of more than expected because us last minute riders were making up the fundraising difference that wasn’t achieved by asking for donations at the cost of a single seat. Busses need funding and in 2017 me and the other late RSVPers where the gap funders. Kiddos are expensive!
There is a bus confirmed leaving Portland to DC on the 18th. More info and RSVP is here. It is not full yet, but there are only 9 days left. Questions about that bus “Contact US” is waiting for your click.
