We live on a Military Base and the only somewhat busy street (w/speed limit of 30) my daughter has to cross has a crossing guard. She will be 8 next month, but she is not as mature as a typical 8 year old.
I am considering letting her walk by herself when she starts 3rd grade in August.
Booboo will be starting Preschool then as well, in a different school, so it would definitely be more convenient if she was able to walk by herself.
I mostly worry about her getting distracted picking flowers or something and not make it to school on time.
