nick, embarking on his first solo walk to school
2010-06-14 07:25:01
we've both been telling nick our “uphill, in the snow, both ways” stories about how we were latchkey children and always walked to and from school by ourselves when we were his age. nick is all for it, and we've almost run out of days in the school year to let him take a solo walk to school -- so despite the sad local news about another missing kid, we let him run off without us. he showed up for class without a hitch.

sean dreilinger: we told him he could walk by himself, and he literally bolted out the door, we had to chase him down to discuss the details and take a few photos…


“no more pictures, talk to the hand…”


it's not entirely solo, our kitten is following him closely…

Neeta Lind: Grandma Neeta no likey…
sarahfelicity: Times have changed, I guess, but I was just telling a friend yesterday about how I walked to school (just over 1/2 a mile) right from the start of first grade. My best friend and I were sent off to walk together as soon as our parents were confident that we wouldn't get lost… and we walked all the way through elementary. Or rode our bikes. :)
