We have been loving the bike riding to and from school these days! Look at my two little school kiddos.....on Wednesdays they get out of school at the same time and I pick them both up together.
Unfortunately my bike has a flat tire at the moment, so we've missed riding this last week. Driving back and forth in the car is not nearly the same. Instead of being all about the journey up to the school, it's just a rushed herding of everyone into and out of the car. And of course it's rushed because we don't have to plan for the long ride, we can just head out at the last minute. I definitely appreciate having a car to get us places quickly and easily, but I realize that I need to be more mindful of our outings and make them meaningful with slower paced walks and bike rides. It's much more fun that way!
