The first week of school we spent a lot of time outside. The weather was beautiful and the girls were getting their bearings without the brother's around during the day. Gwen and Lucy rode their bikes in the front a lot and one day Lucy made some new friends.
We were sitting out front waiting for the boys bus to come by and the kids from the middle school were walking home. I was sitting on the front porch and was pretty unnoticeable for people walking by on the sidewalk. So here comes two middle school boys (6th graders if I had to guess) meandering by on their way home from school. They were very busy being obnoxious and started making fun of the girls as they were playing. I, yelling from the porch, told them to chill out and they stopped making fun. Then Lucy yells "HI-JAH!" You know, like she was a ninja or something. And that started the fun. They boys yelled it, Lucy yelled it back. On and on it went for probably 10 minutes. It was funny at the time but I didn't think much of it.
Fast forward to yesterday. The girls were playing in the backyard and all of a sudden we hear kids walking home. They are being loud and obnoxious. Lucy perked up her little sweet face and yelled "HI-JAH!" again. From the front of the house we hear the return call and off they went again.
I don't know what either of them are thinking. Lucy seems to find it hysterical that these big kids are playing with her and as for the boys? Sheesh. Who knows what they are thinking?
