I think it is safe to say that the thing I will miss most about our neighborhood are the impromptu block parties in front of our house. It usually starts with Max and Aida playing out front. Then Kate and Beth, with her big cup of tea, find their way over. Eventually Noah leads Marianne or James to the party as he has memorized the way. Then one by one other kids in the neighborhood out with their parents see us and stop to join in the fun. The block parties tend to include sidewalk chalk, bubbles, races, the sprinkler, Popsicles, fighting over toys and otherwise having a great time. Here are a few photos from Saturday.
