Every day, I have the great pleasure (and I mean it) of walking my kids back and forth to school a total of four times a day. That’s 8 trips, at about 15 minutes each. I absolutely love it. I bring them to school and walk back home in the morning at 8:00, then I pick them up for lunch at 11:45, bring them back at 1:45, go back to get them at 4:45, and then walk back home. When I pick them up for lunch, we stop at the nearby bakery for a baguette, and this is a really good bakery, by the way! Then at 5:00, we pick up another baguette for dinner. The kids know it’s a special treat when I let them get a snack in the form of some type of pastry at 5, just to tide them over until dinner time. This is one of my greatest pleasures, being able to walk to and from school, bringing them home for a healthy lunch and family time at noon, and getting freshly baked bread for each meal. It’s a much slower pace than what we’ve ever known, and much healthier as well. I’m happy to get in two extra hours of walking each day, not even including walking round and about town while they’re in school. I recorded the following video while walking to pick them up from school at the end of the day today. I hope you enjoy the new video format… Just wanted to do something different for a change!
