    Although I’m not Amish, I walked to and from school for the first 11 years. Then I got a car and drove to and from school. Ah those were the days…

    I walked from kindergarten through 6th grade….about a mile. Had to take the bus after that because school MILES from home. Enjoy your pictures as well as any comments about the Amish life-style.

    Thanks for this, P.L. As an Australian, it is always good to study/see other phases of culture. As a child growing up on a banana plantation I walked several mile to school. Shoes!!!!! What were they!!! Cheers from Down Under. Dave.

    Like Mr. Holsinger, I, too, walked to school the first 11 years–3 different schools, elementary, junior high, and high school–each a little further away. But all in the city. I lived in an urban area of Pennsylvania. And, Yes, brother Terry, those were the days…!

    I still often walk to school unless I ride my bike. I’m 51 and a middle school teacher.
