School bus driver crochets the extra mile

Trudy Serres drives a school bus for Summit Elementary School in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. When children are on her bus, she is their second mom. She also likes to crochet, and one day a 10-year-old passenger, Vincent Lamon, asked her to crochet him a taco, his favorite food. Two days later it was finished, and she gave it to him. He was so proud he showed it to everyone else on the bus, telling them, "Look what Mrs. Trudy made." Then everyone on the bus wanted a crocheted toy, so she went down the aisle and took orders.

Now that school is out for the summer, parents tell Serres their kids are sleeping with their crocheted toys. Some take them on vacation. Others bring them to church. John Londt's three children each received toys. He wrote to the principal, "Throughout the year, Trudy has made each of the students on her bus a crocheted stuffed animal. I cannot imagine how much time this would have taken her, but I know she has made each child feel very special and loved."
