I have 3 kids ages 8, 6, and 4. I live in a small town of 3000. We have a fenced in back yard. I make them stay in the back yard for the most part. If the older two want to ride there bikes out front. I make my 4 yo stay inside. I check on them about every 5 to 10 minutes. Dont get me wrong i go out with them sometimes. I just feel like i have things to do when i get home from work like make dinner, laundry, straighteng up, and dishes. I dont want to deny them being outside cuz i have to make dinner or other things. Opinions.........

Better than having them sit in front of the tv!!! I don't see anything wrong with what you're doing!

Mine are ages 8 and 5, As long as it is nice out, I send mine out when I do housework as well :) The rules are to stay within ear and eye distance, do not leave the yard etc... I raise all the blinds and such so that I can keep tabs on them every couple of minutes.
