We have a couple of kids who live right next door to our new house and they are often outside playing. Yesterday when Hartleigh came home from his dads they were playing hopscotch and he stayed outside and watched them for a while. then he came in and asked if he could get his chalk and play hopscotch with them. Luckily a small section of the fence between the properties is chain link so he can easily climb over.
He spent an hour or so hanging out with them, playing hopscotch and zombies.
Having not lived in an area where there were kids just next door to play with before he’s very much looking forward to hanging out with them again.
Just like we used to!
