I'm loving-Sense of Community
Living as an anglophone in a very francophone community in Quebec we didn't have much interaction with the neighbours and I always felt that the kids were missing out on the activities that the other families would do together in the evenings. It has been wonderful to have the kids take a few toys outside only to be quickly joined by the other children in the area. We can talk to people walking by and they love to talk. We have people stopping in all the time to talk about our garden or what projects we have planned for the house. I expect it to continue through the summer. It feels like we are actually making a little place for ourselves here on the island. The kids have little friends knocking on the door asking them to go out and play. I love it.
