Take time to hug your family!! Bus tragedy

32 posts in this topic

The bus my kid's normally would ride is the bus that is on the news right now. We only know that two of our cousin's kids are in the hospital, but the third one is ok. There was at least one student killed today.

For those of you who are the praying kind, there were 40 kids on that bus, and a couple of other cars involved. They could all use all they prayers they could get.

You had better believe that I have hugged my daughters today! I picked them up from school about the time the fire department went out.

It is with a heavy heart that I type right now. Our cousin's child, our godchild, was the student who was killed in the bus accident today. She was adopted from China as a 10 month old, and was currently in fourth grade. She will be missed!

Our kids also go to Lakeview and thankfully wern't on that bus route. Several of their friends and classmates were however. It seems one more may have died and some more flown out. My thoughts and prayers go out to all the kids and their families. Don't forget to hug your volunteer fire and ambulance crews also, as they put their lives in danger and on hold in tradegies like this.

We have heard about the others. There are two brothers who are both gone, and one other boy. Two were 7th graders, one a 5th grader and our godchild a 3rd grader (I mistyped her grade before). Our cousin's boy that was injured is on his way to Sioux Falls by amb. to get some possible glass removed from his eye. He also has a broken finger, and multiple bumps and scrapes on one side. We are thankful he will be alright.

Thanks for the prayers everyone! I believe that is the only thing keeping the family going right now.

Carolyn, to say I'm sorry would be an understatement in the worst way. I'm at a loss for words for your families loss. My condolences, and prayers go out to your family and all involved.

My kids were supposed to have a game there tonight. I found out about it when my oldest son called and said their bus got turned around, and then told me why.

If you, or your family want or need anything, my e-mail is in my profile. Do not hesitate to contact me.

I just got chills when I read this. I can't tell you how bad I feel for you and your family. I will be thinking of you. I'm also on my way to pick up my daughter and will give her a huge hug.

As said before, children should never pass away.

      did not go around the whole lake,, so that is all we saw

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?

      How much ice??????
