It's early out all week for the elementary school, and Sophie and her friend decided to try walking home to our house...a mile and a half uphill. Hooray for a lovely warm-ish day, and for two sweet girls willing to let Kate tag along. I met them along the way to take backpacks and give them my cell phone. They enjoyed the walk enough that they're planning a repeat. We all agree that we really REALLY miss walking to school, but the thirty minutes it took them to get home yesterday is just a little longer than the 3 minutes it took at our old house.
