Walk To School Day

Wednesday, October 6th, 2010

Did you know that today is International Walk to School day (at least, here in the US)?  I did.  I was made painfully aware of it because my kids’ school makes a big deal out of it and my kids begged me to walk the three-and-a-half miles from our house to their school.  Given that they’re only six and eight years old and that I’d have the two-year-old in tow as well, it wasn’t going to happen.  There was no way I was going to leave the house an hour or more early just so I could listen to them whining about being tired for the last three miles of the trip.  But, as it turns out, we did participate in Walk to School day.
