around the block with only half the neighborhood kids.
i am so grateful for what we have in this neighborhood. i swear, it’s just like it used to be, in the “old days” as they say. i am always hearing people talk about how they wish it was the way it used to be. and as i am listening to them describe their childhood of running around the neighborhood with all their friends like a small gang, going from house to house, grabbing snacks along the way and staying out until the sun went down, i stop and think, that is exactly what my kids have. when school lets out and homework is done, and all weekend long, the streets are echoing screams of laughter and chaos. they help break up fights between each other and make up more times than i can count on my two hands. but at the end of the day as they make their way back to their own homes they are all best friends again with a heart full of memories that will last a lifetime.
