Grandfather Gifts Grandkids a School Bus for Christmas

When it comes to thoughtful and heartwarming gifts, Doug Hayes is truly the MVP. The Oregon grandfather of ten decided to give his grandchildren something truly special this Christmas – a bright yellow school bus.

The school bus, which has been named “Grandfather Express,” will be used to take the children to and from their small Christian elementary school, which doesn’t have any school buses of its own. Doug, who has now become a part-time school bus driver, came up with the idea himself.

The heartwarming moment when the children first saw their surprise was captured on video and shared on social media, where it has gone viral for all the right reasons. “Is that it? You got a bus!” the children can be heard asking in the video, as they run towards their new ride.

When asked why he decided to give his grandchildren such an unusual and special gift, Doug said: “I thought, gee whiz, maybe there’s some way that I can give them a memory that will last all their lives.” And we have to agree, this is a gift that will certainly be remembered for many Christmases to come.

The bus may be a practical solution for getting the kids to and from school, but it also provides an opportunity for Doug to spend some quality time with his grandchildren on a daily basis. Who better to take you to-and-from school than your loving and devoted grandfather?

So, the next time you’re thinking of what to get your loved ones for Christmas, remember Doug’s thoughtful and creative gift. You never know, it might just be the perfect thing to put a smile on their faces.
