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.

I love the edit on these. The emotion is so honest and cute. Watching kiddos make new friends is the best. It just comes so easily to them.
Your words ring so true! What a treasure your kids have
How awesome! Love that these kids will have these photos when they grow up – how many of us would love to have that? I know I would!
What amazing memories for you and your children. What a wonderful community to raise your children in.
