My kids have already taken off for the day, ready to play with one of their friends who lives just a couple of houses away. They are so excited to be having some extra play time this week, while they are out of school for Thanksgiving holidays. I'm so glad that they have friends to play with.
A couple of years ago, there weren't really any kids that they could play with around here. The few that were around their age always seemed to be getting into major trouble- destroying other people's property, already having the police called on some of their actions. It definitely wasn't the kind of behavior I wanted my children exposed to.
Thankfully, they have managed to find a few good friends in the neighborhood now, thanks to a few new arrivals here. Hopefully they can continue finding new friends to have these fun times with!
