|On our way to school|
We get to check out the status of the blackberries at the end of our road (more are ripe, I feel another crumble coming on!) watch the river bubbling by & try to spot the fish, count the steps up the steep bit, watch the builders working on the new flats, try to dodge the big noisy dogs in the prefabs, and wonder why the dogs' owner has their Christmas lights outside all year round. We learn about road safety, and relative geography, as we can hear the children in the playground long before we can see over the wall, or see the school gates.

I know that walking to school is probably going to be one of my passing fads that I'm all enthusiastic about now, but will quickly get forgotten in favour of the car. The road the school is on, though, is really narrow with very limited parking, so driving to school isn't really an easy option. We're doing our bit for our health & environment for as long as we can.

How do you get to school? And what do you find to do along the way?
