I admit it... I'm kinda an overprotective mom.
I can't help it.
The thought of something bad happening to my children is just too much for me to bear.
With that being said, I don't let my kids travel far to go play with others in our neighborhood.
There are LOTS of kids a couple of blocks away, but I don't know them... or their families.
We do have one set of kids that lives just 2 houses down from us.
It is close enough that I let my boys play in their yard... or they come play in our yard.
Notice... I said, YARD.
That way I can always hear and see them anytime I feel the need to check.
This weekend, the weather finally decided to cooperate for outside play.
