"First Stop" is a classic painting that will certainly hit you in the feels. As parents, it always feels like our children are growing up too fast. Just yesterday you were changing their diapers and the next they're already going to school! Looking at this painting of a school bus waiting for a child to hop on inside, you start to remember what it was like having your kid get ready for school. You wake up in the wee hours of the morning and prepare their meals, making sure they have a well-balanced meal to keep them healthy throughout the day. As you bid your child farewell at the bus stop, you think about what you're going to do while waiting for them to come home. But first, you pray for the child's safety on the way to school.
