We had a great time tonight forming some more relationships with our neighbors as we dressed the kids up and set out seeking candy. There are many wonderful people who live so close to us, and we are in the process of being more intentional about forming good connections with them. Tonight was sort of step one for us. Future intentions are to take evening family walks down the street, to take treats for everyone close to Thanksgiving, and to have an open house around Christmas.
Here are some pics of the kids all dressed up. The greatest part: One of our neighbors hadn’t bought any candy, so he ran inside and came back with an apple for each of our kids. When we got home, Liam and Ariana both began saying, “We want apples!” Two buckets full of candy, and my kids wanted the nutritious option. Go figure. 🙂
