We are lucky enough to have amazing neighbours in every direction surrounding our home. There are neighbours who are older and who act as a second set of grandparents. There are neighbours who have kids the same age as our own. And there are neighbours who have older kids who are willing to put up with our little ones’ shenanigans for a fun evening on the driveway.

The little girl here is the same age as our oldest, and this has to be one of the greatest blessings in disguise. These two girls are going to grow up not knowing any other life than having a next door neighbour as a best friend.1

Having the neighbourhood watch-dog also happens to be a blessing in disguise.
