He started waving to the bus every morning wearing a different outrageous costume each day.
“The school bus for the first time ever came down our street this year,” says Dale. “This was [my son's] first year on the bus. My wife came running in the room and suggested we go wave at him to embarrass him.”
Since the fall, Dale has waved at his son in 180 different outlandish costumes.
At first, Rain Price was mortified, but since then, he’s grown to like dad’s surprises, as have his fellow students on the bus.
“The first day of high school…it was really embarrassing,” Rain says. “But the last couple of months it has turned into more entertainment.”
The father of three, a stay-at-home dad, has gone through the family’s Halloween costume collection and borrowed outfits from friends along the way. His wife, Rochelle, took a picture of each day’s outfit and uploaded it to waveatthebus.blogspot.com.
Now, Dale Price has become a bit of a local celebrity in Utah and a phenomenon in the blogosphere.
