I walked those miles. ;) Well, I did until high school. Then I took a bus. :hilarious: In reality I think the walk felt like 13 miles. I know my walk home was all uphill, but it was only a 10 minite walk. Where we live there are no sidewalks, so everyone who uses the elementary school by me, which is probably 1 mile away from my house, is required to take a bus.
In today's world, I wouldn't want to see any elementary school students walk to school.....ever. A bus or parent drop off is the only way to go. For their safety. Ya know?;)

I wish the world didn't have to be like this... I'm so glad I grew up in the 70's and 80's... kids are so sheltered now because the world can be so evil, that they don't get to learn independence by having outdoor freedom. (sorry... I'm a debbie downer!)

Thank you. No, it has been I guess a year or so since she found out. She didn’t do chemo. It just went really quickly. It is a fairly large office.
Sympathy like. Pancreatic cancer is a nasty one like that. My friend Bob didn't make it to the end of the year from his diagnosis. He did have other complications, too, but the chemo didn't work.

So I was at dd's gym yesterday and a mom says that there was an argument between a dad and the head coach of the whole cheer program. Apparently the head coach said, "if you don't like the policies then leave". A younger kid who is the sister of one of the kids on that team overheard the whole thing and blabbered that so and so was off the team. It was not true, of course. She told her 6 year old not to spread false rumors. In the car home from practice last night, dd tells me, "Guess what? So and so's dad had an argument with Coach so and so and now she is off her team." I said, "Who told you that because it isn't true". I assumed she would say the 6 year old who was on her team. Nope it was another kid. Apparently false rumors travel fast. Oh, and the girl that bases my dd in stunts has a sprained ankle and is iffy for the competition of the 19th. There is only 1 kid on a higher level team that could sub because she is still 8. But that would mean learning a whole new routine in 2 practices, and it is supposed to snow on Sunday when there is practice. They only have 2 practices scheduled before next Saturday. Hopefully sprains heal quick. It happened a week ago.
Yikes....What's a new year starting without some drama? Hope the sprain heals quickly, and that the rumor mill gets shut down! Do you know how bad the sprain is? I sprained my ankle in jr. high basketball and it took weeks to heal, but I still played on it. I was mostly a bench warmer anyway, though. The ankle was a really nice shade of purple/blue for a while....and another girl sprained hers just a little after me....maybe 20 minutes, and hers wasn't nearly as bad. She still taped it up for games, but it was more for support. Can they tape for the competition?

You’re not alone in your thoughts. I didn’t realize how lucky we were until I became a parent. I know when I was 5 I could go to the playground by myself or with a friend. I never would have let my kids do that.

Quoting Cher, "If I could turn back time"

Lucky or unlucky I never had kids, so I didn't have to shelter anyone. When my step son was about 8-10, I couldn't get him or his older brother to go outside when they visited.

Hmmm that's not cool! I wonder what they are really looking at though... I mean my driveway and neighborhood aren't anything special!
This is how I look at these things too. And my Alexa. Hack into my Alexa, idc. All you're going to learn is what my voice sounds like, what my daughter's voice sounds like, and what music we listen to. So..... meh.

I don't think I saw a bruise when she took off her shoe. But at the doctor, the assistant wrote a note saying she had to not do any practices for 5 weeks. The mom didn't see the note before she left. She thinks the doctor said it could take up to 5 weeks to heal. But the head coach said she cannot practice or do anything at the gym unless the note says otherwise. She is really careful with the kids and injuries. They are actually considering getting helmets for older level girls to practice with to prevent concussions. We'll see what happens on Sunday.
