We’ve been saying for awhile that we need to form relationships with people who live near us and this weekend we got an opportunity to do that.
On Saturday morning, my wife hosted a group of moms who came over, with their kids and let the kids roam free in our backyard.
Then, in the evening, we hosted a block party for our whole street. I’m ashamed to say, we met some of neighbors for the very first time, even though we’ve lived here for nearly seven years.
Of the 21 houses on our cul-de-sac, we had seven families stop in throughout the evening. It was a lot of fun and we will have to do it again.
We are going to be intentional about getting to know more of our neighborhood and spend at least part of a weekend each month hosting neighbors at our house.
