I remember fondly the elementary school years when we could stop by the classroom, say hi to the teacher & be out in 20 mins. Now for high school I have 7 teachers to meet and hear a little talk about what they are going to do and the whole thing takes 2 hours. Not to mention that DS has a huge school--the old school was too small so they basically added an addition about the same size onto it and there's a "connector" (i.e. bridge) connecting the 2 halves, so it takes a while to go from one half to the other. I think it's like a 1/4 mile walk. he did say that 3 of his classes are very close together in the basement. But after being at work all day, I don't really feel like spending my night doing this.
