Sarah, when I grew up in Omaha, we walked every day and my mom was a SAHM. She said it was good for us. Only if it was pouring rain did we get a ride to school. Some parents here do not want their kids outside for recess if it is below 32 degrees. Honestly. Kids need a quick break out of the classroom. Sitting for 4 hours at a time is too much. The teachers go out with them. I want to go out most days.
Yep! THAT's what I'm used to. My mom was a SAHM and didn't we didn't have a second car for the longest time, so she couldn't drive us when my dad used the car for work. My Jr. High was about a mile away too. I do remember getting a few rides there when it was super cold (or raining), but very rarely did I get a ride to elementary school (a few blocks away).
