Having Neighbors ROCKS!

We have been living in our house for over 8 and a half years. We don't really know our neighbors. Our across the street neighbors take care of our kitties and they are very nice. But, we don't have the type of relationship where we hang out and talk. With the kids going to the local public school - I'm meeting all sorts of my neighbors. It also helps that we are around a lot more.

Bubba has a friend! This in by itself is a huge and giant deal. He has trouble making new friends and especially making NICE friends. But, he has a friend - and the best part? His friend lives across the street! Well, catty-corner really. But, still. On Friday, his friend came over and asked him to come over and play. Then, yesterday, Bubba asked for him to come over to our house, and then today, Bubba went over there. It's like a real friend. We were pregnant at the same time!

But, it was funny our neighbor's older son, who is Prissy's age, said he didn't see a moving truck. And she had to explain to him that we've been here all the time. So, it's pretty cool.

And tomorrow, Prissy is going over to her friends house too! (although, it's not across the street, we have to drive to this one. )

It just sort of makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. Although, now, that we're all friends and stuff - it means I feel like I need to take better care of the lawn. I can't be THE neighbors with a bad lawn anymore. *sniff* and we got rid of our lawn guy when we got our pool. So, I was out there for hours today trying to tame the beast. Ugh... But, on the positive side: yardwork is an awesome workout.
