Some schools have had a few days with students this past week; but today marks the first day for many, many other students across the country. I'd like to send special wishes today to The Teach , Robert , and my friend Doris for a happy successful school year.
Please take a few extra moments in your morning commute to watch out for our children.

Ruby Doors! Very good!

I am missing school. Next year I will go back, but I need this down time to heal from the fiasco that was last year.

Jientje said...

Great post Carletta!
That bus door is a great find!
School started yesterday here.
Thanks for playing!

Robert said...

More great shots. I love the theme. And thank you sooooo much for your well wishes for my school year. I'm really looking forward to meeting the kids on Wednesday!

Gattina said...

Very nice combination ! I like these yellow school buses, whe don't have them here in Belgium.

Great photos, Carletta. Red doors in a beautiful building do double duty, lol. and the bus doors so suit this time of year. Thanks much for reminding me to drive carefully. Having no children, I tend over the summer to forget about school zones and need to remember that again in September. A friend of mine teaches school, so I know that the kids here start today too.

Robin said...

Great doors, and I love the angle on the bus shot. School started here yesterday too, but no school buses. We visited the States last month and it is my son's great wish that he get to ride a school bus someday LOL.

Neal said...

That school bus reminds me of how much I hated to see school start when I was a kid. I worked hard in school but that didn't mean I liked it. :)

Leora said...

Doors of the church are lovely. The school bus reminds me that my daughter started first grade today. And so her mommy is anxious.

Rose said...

I tried to leave on comment on the previous post, no luck...so will try again. I must say that for me there is just something about red doors...and I love them.

Nice way to kill two birds with one stone :o)
My school started last Monday. I'm taking it easy on blogging with full time job and school it's getting pretty busy...

Melli said...

WELL! You took ONE of my idea for a different door -- but I BET you won't get the other one -- and I'll save it until Saturday just to give you a chance!!! LOL! I do LOVE the school bus -- and of course, I love the church door! :)

Ralph said...

Red paint on the doors of a church. It seems so fitting, and a common sight on old white churches onthe green of many New England churches.

A classic color, that Red!

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Lovely red doors!

Yes, today was the first day of school here in Ontario. The kids don't look all that happy but the parents do. LOL I think many teachers are probably the least happy of all, though. It's hard work.

Yen said...

I love the red door! Stunning shot:) Mine is HERE if you have a time! Thanks!

ellen b said...

I love how people were able to find red doors for both of these challenges. The School bus door is genius for this week :0)
Have a wonderful Tuesday...
Oh and about the comment about the Brady bunch. I answered on my blog that we definately had a bunch of people living there (I have 7 siblings) but we were nothing like the all american brady's.

Akelamalu said...

I love that first photo!

Check out my post tomorrow m'dear there's an award for you. :)

Dragonstar said...

Great doors here. Such a good idea to feature the doors on a school bus!

Jientje said...

I added the Linky for you!!!

Dianne said...

beautiful red door on a beautiful church

school opens Thursday here and already the police are stopping and warning speeders!!

I can't believe people don't slow down in a school zone!!

juliana said...

impressive door, and red too! love it.

school year starts here habitually on 1st september (unless it falls on weekend) so streets are full of youth these days...

Becky and Gary said...

Those doors are beautiful. They really compliment all the stone work of that church. I especially like the lights on the side.
Happy RT.

Mojo said...

So you're being a "door-k" today? (C'mon, you had to see that one coming!)
nice work.

Daniel J Santos said...

beautiful doors, excellent.

I have in my blog "With Images" a small award for you.

George Townboy said...

You must be the only person in blogland that can handle two themes in one photo ... consistently!! LOL

Awesome shot! And great reminder for school days. I try going to work later and coming home earlier so I don't interfere with the little kiddies and their buses!

Gramma L said...

Double post - great job.

Rambling Woods said...

Yes..people zoom around stopped buses all the time. Interesting meme..Open doors...

Shannon said...

Started today- this year at Crestwood Int. Sure do things differently here! =) How many days to go? I'm exhausted already! =)
Love the doors, too!

Raven said...

Like those red doors. The school bus brings back not so happy memories for me. Tomorrow is the first day of school here in Hancock.

Lawstude said...

lots of doors. i like them 'coz they open the way for friendship thru blogging and i am always delighted to see your comments in my blog. have a great day carletta.

Jim said...

Hi Carletta, Happy RRtU! I see you have finished with bridges and now are on to doors. These two are great.
I guess I could use a shiny red sports car next week, the two I have caught lately are orange and pink ones. There are a lot of cars on my blogs though.

Willow said...

A Blue Bird bus! I know my buses because my uncle owned a bus transportation company and now my brother owns a bus broker company. Wait! Those were yellow doors!
I love the red church doors? Why red on the church??

Christine said...

There does seem to be a lot of churches with red doors just none around here. Love the bus doors. We live across from a school so we have been extra careful.

Minkydo said...

Yep, school started here today. Nice thing is it's quieter in the evening :)

Kerri said...

LOVE that red door on the church!!

Carver said...

I see I missed this one. Love red door and also good message for watching out for the children riding the school bus. I was lucky not to be hurt too bad but when I was in third grade I was hit by a car when I crossed the street after getting of the bus. That was over 40 years ago but it had a big impact on me and my being careful when driving and also protective when my daughter was growing up. I did hear the train song this time. Perfect choice for those great train shots.

Excellent photos Carletta and great post!
