I think we hit the jackpot.
I love watching out kids play with and grow alongside so many other kids. Ten years from now I hope I remember how Eleanor’s butt wiggled while she tried to peddle her trike. I wonder what kind of friendship or rivalry she’ll have with the boy across the street. As a parent, it’s the ultimate joy watching your kid foster bonds with lifelong friends. I imagine what life will be like in 5, 10, 15 years. Who we will see on Christmas reunions and friends we’ll support through graduations and proms.
I moved a lot as a kid. I never had a neighborhood like this. So it really means a lot to me that my kids get a beautiful place like this to grow up and I’ll never take it for granted.
