    We lived within walking distance of St. Mark’s for almost 2 years when we were building our house. It was amazing. It’s not just the kids walking to school but parents walking to football games etc. I was one of the Football Moms and I made the boys chocolate chip cookies once a week which I delivered warm from the over. When Tres went on his famous 10 day Pecos wilderness trip which all Marksmen have to endure (10 days without a bath!!!) he walked home. I would not have let him in my car that dirty, anyhow!
