My girls have to walk to / from school - the rule at our school is if it's less than a mile and a half, the kids can't ride a bus. It's fine when it's nice outside, but I leave for work before they leave for school and if it's storming or 10 degrees outside, they still have to walk to school. and my 10yo is well over a mile each way. Yea, it's good exercise for them, but there should be plans for bad weather that the kids could ride the bus. Guess it's a district problem not exercise....just adding my two cents
strangely enough - both of my girls walk to and from school and both are overweight - so how much does that little bit help??!
