our big backyard 2

Although we don't have much space to play in our own backyard, we enjoy other options for being outside.
The street out front is often full of people playing, lounging, talking. Here Michael and Amy play some badminton alongside others. This is a great time to get to know some of our neighbors, and to let them get to know us, this odd foreign family!

Our other option is the 'neighborhood sandlot' - the field and playground at the international school just a few blocks away. Mark and the kids often join in weekend Ultimate Frisbee games here...

...and it's one of Michael's favorite after-school spots to play with his friends.

We're so thankful for these great neighborhood options!
