Get to know the neighbors...

Tonight we got to meet many of our neighbors.

One of them hosted a BBQ.

We met people who just moved in and others that have been here for a long time.

We got to know the kids and even found a couple to do some odd painting jobs and a few other chores.

This is a night we will do again!

 

What is a BBQ without a good camp fire!

Simple ways to save money…
