FAMILY SESSION: These are the people in your neighborhood

 I grew up in a small town.

I attended the same high school from which my grandfather, and both of my parents graduated. 

I even had some of the same high school teachers as my mom & dad.

We lived in a small subdivision and there might have been a total of 5 buses for the entire school district?

I would go out at night, for a break from studying, to roam around with my best friend that lived across the street...

There wasn't a call from a big city or anything, we were just content...

After college and few years on my own, I got married and moved to a "big city" area...

Subdivision life wasn't quite the same as I remembered...The hustle & bustle of everything, the close proximity of everything was almost exhausting...

My husband had a dream to get farther out...have a tractor...be a bit more secluded...

I was nervous...

I'm an extrovert and I NEED people...I don't like to be on my own a lot...

I shouldn't have worried...

It's not like we live out in the middle of nowhere (although it does feel like the boonies from time to time) it's refreshing...

I have found my way back to that "content" feeling again...not feeling like I have to keep up with every "latest" thing...We have a garden, a yard to take care of, chores to do...the tractors wake us up early as they rumble down the road and if that doesn't do it, the chickens make sure they are heard as well...

But, what I love most about living where we live now is the neighborhood...

We don't have sidewalks and it takes a bit to walk from one house to the next, but we all watch out for one another...There are only about 20 of us along our dead end streets...the kids ride their bikes in the street and we all run across each other's yards...

These cuties are just some of the people I call my neighborhood family...and I'm just thankful for their generosity and kindness and sweet words. 

Before their little girl was born, they wanted to get big brother psyched about his new "job"!
