Walking Practice

It has been said that back in the day hearty people walked a mile to school
uphill both ways in the rain....

Today kids still walk a mile to school and my daughter and her friend will be doing just that every day next year probably even in the rain.

Today we took our first practice walk and it went quite well. Despite walking through the first intersection on a "don't walk," the anxious duo made it to middle school in one piece.

It struck me for the first time in a great while how small older kids can look.

I am sure those girls are contemplating with excitement and wonder (and perhaps a healthy dose of fear) all that awaits them behind door 10E.

I simply hope their new school meets their expectations
and Emma and her friend exceed theirs...
