I had a busy week last week so I'm running behind.
Last Wedesday was Walk to School Day. The school was asking anyone that could to walk , save gas and get out and ride your bike , walk or skateboard. For some of the children that live to far they had a meeting point at the post office where you could walk w/ the principal. We didn't really need to go to the post office but we did anyway. The kids wanted to walk with there friends. There was a lot of teachers there plus quite a bit of kids. It was a nice morning for it.
Our children walk everyday. Paul usually drops them off in the morning on his way to work. I usually walk to get them. We live exactly one mile. So the kids were adding up about how much we walk during the school. We came up with a number right around 150 miles. So that means I get 300 miles Wow !!!!! How Awesome is that ????
I actually like walking home. It gives them some time afterschool to be outside and then by the time we get home they can do there homework before dinner. I was raised like that so I try to get the children to get it done then have the rest of the evening to play or whatever.
The children got a sticker and bracelet for walking. Also the girls got a lightweight backpack and Ridge got this bright green T - Shirt.
I took a couple pics during the walk. It was really fun and so healthy for everyone. It was also a wonderful memory we made together.
