Will, the little boy that I nanny, asks me every now and then if we can go play with “those neighbor kids” who live in the house by mine. Every time he asks, I remind him that “those neighbor kids” moved to Florida with their parents a few months ago. Weeell… this week, they were back in town! Their house sold so they came to sign the final papers and such. When I told Will that we were going to see those same old neighbor kids he was SO excited! However, he couldn’t wrap his mind around the fact that we weren’t actually going to Florida in order to see them. I kept trying to explain that they were back HERE visiting, but geography is a tricky thing for a four-year-old.
Anyway, we met up with everyone at My Big Backyard at the Memphis Botanic Garden. All in all, there were 10 kids with 6 adults so we were quite the crew walking around.
Will and Judah saying goodbye. They kept calling each other “Best Buddy” which I thought was pretty much the sweetest thing ever. I knew Will had missed “those neighbor kids” but I didn’t realize how attached he was to them.
Speaking of those neighbor kids… they have grown up SO much since I last saw them. On Wednesday evening, our old neighborhood friend group all got together again.
Tim & Stephanie (who are still our neighbors!), Rachel & Tony with their four kiddos, and then us. We miss this sweet family, but are so thankful that Tim and Stephanie still live just two houses over.
