Remember that old song from Girl Scouts? Well, since we moved to a new town, we’ve been living it. Our neighbors behind us have seven kids and our next door neighbors have a little boy Molly’s age.
But that’s not all. Now that Molly has started Kindergarten we have met lots of kids in the neighborhood, all within walking distance. It’s a dream come true for our little socialite.
Molly hasn’t always been this social. Sure, she’s always had friends but there was an obvious change in her that happened around five. Friends became extremely important.
She would rather be playing with friends than anything else in the world. It even nudges out princesses. *gasp*
Of course, if her friends want to play princess, she’s not one to argue!
Of course, we can’t forget our old friends. We make the drive up to see them pretty regularly, too.
Here’s Alex, Molly and Abby eating giant slices of pizza on one of our recent trips. Frightening thing is, all three girls finished their slices…and are still as skinny as ever. I just looked at the pizza and my butt grew two sizes. So unfair!
I am sure we will be back to visit this new friend very often.
