It was one of those things that started as a wild idea like, “what if we got a bus?” “what do you mean…like a school bus?” “yeah…hahaha!” “that would be so cool! haha!” and that quickly turned to….”wait…what if we actually did that?!” which lead to a search on Craigslist, which led to the day we actually bought a bus.
This photo was taken the very first day we brought the Brave Bus home….hard to believe that was in 2012!
Since then this bus has carried us all over the place! Our lovely friends who come to Brave Girl Camp ride in the bus to Brave River Ranch from their hotel every morning and back again at night….
And we’ve gone on lots of day trips with our family and friends…
Brave Girls from all over the world have Mod Podged messages all over the ceiling! Encouraging, uplifting, lovely messages!!
We always planned to paint her and give her a true Brave Girl makeover, the way we have with everything else. Finally this spring the time has come!!!! On Friday, the men of Brave Girls Club spent all day taking out her windows…
And getting her all ready and prepped to be painted….
The men of Brave Girls Club don’t end up on the blog very often, but truly they are such an incredible and important part of what we do. They make things happen. They think things through with us and help us figure out complicated problems
They are gentlemen. They are kind and good all the way to their toes. They are thorough and meticulous and detail-oriented and such fun to have around. We wouldn’t be able to do what we do without them.
So….after all their hard work…and Ashlee’s!! the bus was all ready to go to the paint shop…
We got her back yesterday and we can’t stop giggling!! We LOVE how she turned out!!!!
Today Melody is working on some art work that will take her over-the-top look a step further! We are so excited!!!
We can’t wait to show you what she looks like when she’s all done (we can’t wait to see it ourselves!!!). If you want to see her in person, we hope you’ll come to the Brave Girl Symposium this summer and take a ride and a photo with her! (The bus is like one sprinkle on top of the cake of awesomeness that the Symposium is going to be…it’s seriously going to be the most incredible thing we’ve done so far!!!! Hope you’ll come…click here for info!)
We’ll share more photos as the makeover moves along. We’re sure glad to have to you share this fun stuff with!
