Where are your kids?

That's what I want to go say to my neighbor. We live in a cute little old house (built in the 20s) on the street corner in town. We live in a town of about 3,000 people, which is small compared to some of the other surrounding towns in the area. We're boarderd by two big cities and another relatively large town.  We have a neighbor who lives in a trailer next to us. I honestly have no idea how many kids they have, but I just saw a group of about six boys and one little girl walking down the street and through our yard.  The youngest had to be about three, the oldest didn't look older than eight.  While this is a nice little town, there is a trailer park up the street as well as an old mill where some shady people hang around. There's also a lot of traffic coming through these streets. The kids are walking in direction of downtown and the railroad tracks. I wouldn't let my 6 year old walk down these streets alone much less down near train tracks and town.

I see kids walking our neighborhood and riding their bikes here too and it baffles me! We live right next to a major bypass. I would never allow my kids to do that.

My kids made a fort in the living room out of my daughter's annual tri-fold display boards that we collect after every science project. DH has been on me for quite awhile to throw those out, and has wryly said that he's glad they are finally getting some good use out of them.

The moral of the story is what? That Children are outside playing?
