11. My experience was very like yours

I was in a public school, and in the burbs in the southeast, and we did ride the school bus, but we also had three recesses and played the games you mentioned. No cars, for the most part in the hood. We engaged in outdoor, unsupervised play. Rode our bicycles in packs. Played games of hide and seek that took in whole blocks. Virtually no "managed" activities. Great fun, just getting to be a kid. lost, I think, to our grandchildren.
