The kids have just been hanging out in the cul-de-sac today. I took the camera out to document "just another day in July." The older kids weren't too excited about getting their picture. Caleb is the youngest of the older boys (and London). They "have nothing to do." They are often found playing a game of soccer or basket ball, but tonight they were hanging on the Benson's porch.
The girls were just hanging out too. They love to do art and pretend. They spend a lot of time in garages where it is shady. Just being together can be fun too. Today they ate over 100 cream and fruit pops from our outside freezer. I am not a fan of the sticky mess so I figure the sooner they are gone the better off we are.
It was an exciting moment when the bigger kids saw that there was something to do - jump in the girls picture. This was all followed by a water fight and begging to have a "camp fire" in the fire pit we built in the empty lot next to our house.
Andy was racing trikes with two little boys his age. (There are 4 boys in 6 houses closest to us that will all be in Andy's grade in school.) They were so darn cute! I took this little photo story.
On just another evening in July the neighborhood kids caught three large snakes within just a few minutes. To say the kids were excited is a huge understatement. Here are the girls showing off one of the snakes.
