Finding local resources

It was a very fine day today, with the true mark of the coming Spring — the guinea pigs had a day out.

Mom found two new kids in the neighborhood today. One has been riding the school bus since the start of this school year but it wasn’t until a few weeks ago that Alice figured out her name and where she lived (Charles thought of her only as “the girl who hates me” which doesn’t really distinguish among the many girls who know Charles). Her name is Tiffany, she is in 2nd grade, and she lives a couple of houses down from where Olivia lived. Mom walked Alice and Polynomial over to the house to introduce herself and Alice and invited Tiffany back for a walk and a look at Alice’s home ground.

While there Mom found a boy, roughly Charles’ age, who lives in the house where Andreas lived back in the day. Mom convinved him to go over as well and hang with Charles, Josie, and Matt. He did play with that crew for a while until his dad dropped by to send him home. So Alice and Charles might have a somewhat better summer this year.
