I feel like Peter Pan

On the bus today I saw a line of children walking to school in bright day-glo jackets, accompanied by adults wearing similar jackets emblazoned with "Road Safety Instructor". Each adult had two children by the hand. The last group of three was an older man with a grey moustache, walking with two little girls. They were lagging behind the rest of the party, and as my bus drove on I saw the man turn to look at the little girls then start to skip down the road with them. It was great - I remember my dad used to skip with me and my sister around the college where he was a teacher.
