Sun goes down, you come in

Published May 8, 2015 by lynn k scott

With my daughter finally connecting with the neighborhood girls, she is constantly outside.  It can make getting assignments done timely a bit more challenging, but friends and exercise are part of education too.  As long as everything gets done, I can’t complain about my 9-year old not wanting to sit mindlessly in front of the television or watching kid videos on youtube.

She has the same rule I had as a kid, when the sun goes down, you come in.  She is playing in our “circle”.  It’s nice that several parents are situated around the circle, so someone is always watching the kids.

It reminds me of, “it takes a village to raise a child.”  All the parents have discussed making corrections if the kids squabble, are riding scooters in the street and the like.

I walk outside to call the lil miss home before the last of the light in the evening sky give way to the light of the moon.  She was close to the house.  I have somehow agreed to them having a sleepover here next weekend.  Oh that should be “interesting”. No matter, the lil miss is very happy with being part of the “neighborhood kids”.
