Connecting with Neighbors

Yesterday, several children in my neighborhood used sidewalk chalk to draw a huge rainbow crosswalk from their house to another house across the street. It lit up the neighborhood.

We're all finding new ways to stay connected, and a lot of those new ways involve the computer. While it's socially responsible to maintain a safe distance from others right now, that doesn't mean we have to isolate ourselves completely from those in our immediate neighborhood.

Today, while it rains, help your children make cookies, bread, paper flower bouquets, pictures, crafts, or friendly notes. When the sun comes out, take a walk and leave the gifts on your neighbors' doorsteps. Stay connected.
