Leah woke us up this morning to ask if she and Hailey could go play with the “neighborhoods”. Although I did not say yes (It was super early and I was still in bed!), the fact that I could have said yes makes me very happy. Our neighbors across the street have a 6 year old boy who Hailey is already in love with and our neighbors two doors down have a 6 year old boy and a 4 year old girl. Although I have just met the mom by phone, I just learned that there is another 2 year old boy nearby. I am excited to get to meet them next week as well!
Homes in a historic neighborhood appeal to a wide range of people and we are thrilled to see more families with young children moving in. (Of course, we will be just as thrilled when a certain young couple in the neighborhood has their first non-canine child 🙂 ). There are a lot of children at the other end of our neighborhood, but it isn’t the same as having children close enough that they can run in and out of each others houses (when they are old enough to cross the street by themselves, of course!).
I already loved our house and our neighborhood, but having more children nearby makes it even better!
