This year, I decided to keep October fun and simple by sharing 31 Days In The Life Of A Big Family. These will be brief daily posts built around a snapshot or three of what we did each day. I will probably post pics with captions directly from my phone each day, then add more text when I have time to sit down at a computer.
Of course it’s impossible to cover all the activity in a household of our size, and I won’t even try. I just want to share a quick sample of what we do.
Tonight we attended our local Neighborhood Night Out. Since we live just a few blocks from our subdivision’s community center, we decided to walk. That’s a lot of kids in front of me.
We had a good time making new friends – met a homeschooling family, and another family with 2 boys the ages of PerryBoy and Parker, less than a block from us.
The kids met some firefighters and climbed around the inside of a fire engine.
There was a family with 3 little adorable curly redheads, too. I wanted to kidnap them, but their parents were watching. Instead, Parker just mooched cheese curls from the littlest guy, who was glad to share.
Did your neighborhood have a National Night Out? Did you attend?by Did you enjoy this post? Please share it with your friends!
