The best thing about walking, riding and scooting to school is that it builds camaraderie between me and my grandpa. I never grew up with my grandparents. They are here in Australia for a holiday and he drops and fetches me from school every day so this is my chance to become closer to him and also I get to know him better. Along the way he tells me lots of stories and I enjoy his company. From Aadi Yr 4
