Celebrating the First Sign of a Post-Covid World: A Yellow School Bus

Driver, rev your engines!

I’m talking to you, school-bus driver. I’ve missed you more than you could imagine. I’ll never take you for granted again, I promise. How would you like your coffee when you grind that big yellow bus to a stop in front of my house?

Tall, half-caff, soy latte, you say? No problem! As long as my son is onboard when you slam that door and trundle down the street at 7 a.m. on Monday. That’s the first official day of almost full-time school in our town, now that the pandemic is easing.

Excitement is at a fever pitch at our house this weekend, at least for me and my wife Diana. We’re so weary of zoom classes and the perpetual mess of having our three boys at home pretty much all the time.

So hallelujah! This is one small step for schoolkids, one giant leap for their parents. This weekend will be a whirlwind of preparation, but we’re all in. New sneakers? Ring ‘em up! New backpack? Take your pick, kiddo.

Now’s the time to reclaim some of the joys of life, post-Covid. So here’s an idea, moms: celebrate your new freedom! Make a beeline for FCG. We’ve missed you, too.

We’re all yours, spotlessly clean and fully stocked with stylish bargains. Stop by one of our three stores and enjoy some retail therapy. After a year of keeping the kids home from school, you know that old couch or upholstered chair has to go to the dump. Start your home-improvement project this weekend at FCG!
