I'm so glad we walked home from preschool that day. Had we been driving home from preschool, we would have never made the wonderful connection with our neighbors over the tiny squirrel. So many times when I'm walking somewhere, I'll stop and say hello and chat a bit, and actually make a connection with the people I'm passing. But when driving, I'm much less likely to do so. I usually just wave and keep on driving. When I consider the friends I've made during our time here, I realize that most of them are folks I saw regularly during walks to and from the park or school. Walking places is such a superior experience in every way to driving for me, and I'm so hoping we won't give up our "walkable" lifestyle when we move to the big city this summer.
