Something that happens all the time here. Just before dinner the kids play in the street, running, laughing, having fun. We have lots of kids in the neighborhood, but usually the kids play only with their immediate neighbors. It is nice that I know all the kids by name, and I know their parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles and cousins too.
Our daughter will start school next year and our next door neighbor, opposite neighbor and this orange house will have kids on the first grade too! Friends and school mates, how fun!
Even though they will be studying on the first grade, playing will always be the most important thing these four friends will do. And I am fine with that.
I am so happy that the neighborhood is safe for our kids to enjoy. We are really pleased to have our children grow up in Central Asia.
