It would make a big difference to me. The latter seems awfully far, and will to you sometimes, too. The former wouldn't be *too* bad.
Hi Katarina!

It is 12 miles from where we live and about 20 miles from my work location. It's not really that far but it is on the opposite direction from me and my wife's work locations.

So you'd be driving 32 miles to get your kid to school and then off to work? That's a lot of driving. Who's going to pick up your child at the end of the school day?

My kids schools are under 3 miles away and about 8 miles away. The closer school takes me longer to get to due to traffic at school drop off time. It can take 7 min when not busy and 30 when it is. The other school takes 15-20 depending on traffic. 30 minutes was my limit, little did I know I could hit that limit with a school basically down the street.
