After school today, it was my plan to take the kids out and let them ride their bikes in the front yard. (Due in part to the numerous peach flavored rings consumed by my already active 4 year old... See next post.) Also, this little one has learned to ride without her training wheels and she is really enjoying practicing her new skill! I need to get some pictures of her.. Hopefully I'll post some soon... The kids were thrilled with the plan and I was pleasantly surprised when our new neighbors joined them. Three girls (and their parents) have moved in next door. They are between 8 and 16 years old and they excitedly joined in a game of Nerf football and then tag with my little ones. I was really grateful for their patience and for their interest in my kids. I think they all had a good time and they've made plans to do it again soon! :) The family seems very friendly and "normal'. :) That's Lowell's way of saying that they're not snooty or arrogant. The kids and I made chocolate chip cookies and took them over to say Welcome and then a couple of days later, we got cupcakes in return! :) Its good to have neighbors.

Neighbors can make or break a dwelling place, we've realized. We now have great ones and we're so thankful for them, but we've had some not-so-great ones and they've been miserable to live next to. Glad you have some nice ones!
