Walking to School

We walk to school every day. It’s a half mile. Like the U.S. Postal Service, whether rain, sleet or snow, we walk.  The above cartoon pretty well describes the reactions we get from our neighbors and the kids’ schoolmates.


  1. When my 5-year-old’s teacher took some kids for a walk in the woods near the school, apparently some children got afraid when they could no longer see pavement and said, “Are we lost?” and “How are we going to find our way home?” Life is changing too much–our children’s generation is growing up in a world that is almost more different from the one we grew up in than it is similar. Funny if you look at it the way this cartoon does; also very sad if you look at it from a different angle!

  2. Michelle- that’s so sad! Maybe the teacher could have said she was leaving breadcrumbs to find the way back home. Then they could worry about the same thing happening to them as happened to Hansel and Gretel. Heh heh heh…
