community boy…

September 9, 2010

walking home from a friend’s house after dinner:

“Mom, I really like being part of a community…you know, eating together, living together in our neighborhood…”

Jack, age 7, future community organizer (or a very happy participant)

    So sweet! Love this.

  2. Oh I bet you’re a proud mama.

    BTW, I received the nicest message today from our school principal. She called to tell me about all of the smiles she’s been seeing in response to the chalk messages left on the sidewalk on the night before school. She thought I might know something about them. Who me?? Thanks again for the wonderful idea!

    Aw, I’m with Jack. I think we really need more community, and I think time spent in community is the best kind of time there is.

    Isn’t it amazing how insightful a child can be? Blows me away sometimes. The mind of a child is an amazing thing. Gotta’ love it!
