My youngest son gets dropped off to school in the morning by me and he either walks or gets a lift from a friends' mum, back home. If he has sports to play after school, he gets a lift or comes home and then rides his bike. my middle son catches a train to college and the eldest drives to uni and work.I have to be at work at 830 and finish around 445/500pm, and dont get home till about 530, so I can't pick the younger one up.

The youngest walks to the elementary school. It's only about six blocks from home. I drop the middle schooler off on the way to work and my oldest two (junior and freshman) drive to school.

The high schoolers can catch the bus at the end of the block, but the oldest has a zero hour class and has to be to school before the bus is even in the neighborhood. It's just easier for them to drive.

The middle schooler does walk home when he doesn't have football practice. Otherwise, I pick him up on the way home since it's basically on the way.

My son takes the bus to and from school, then I pick him up at the bus stop. A friend drives my daughter and her son into school and I pick them up at school. I'm a bus driver without pay!!

Well, your kids can all hate my kids - they roll out of bed and turn on their computers! They "attend" PA Virtual Charter School, the largest cyber school in PA. We've been doing it for six years, my oldest just graduated and my youngest has never been in "regular" school.

M-F my son walks to and from school mainly for the extra exercise. My daughter walks to school on Wednesday since she doesn't start school until 8:55. All other mornings I drive her and pick her up from school since she starts school at 6:50 am.It takes 25 minutes to get to there school.

I drive them to school - two different schools, Middle & High - and I pick them up after school.

I take my son to school in the morning before work, three days a week he has after school activities that keep him until 5:30, so I pick him up on my way home those days and on the other two days my husband picks him up.
