Neighbors Are True Gifts
Our neighbor, who is a jewel to have living beside us, gave G a gift. It is a very used gift, loved by the original owner, but a gift non the less. I mean used in that he didn't spend a lot of money on it thankfully, (because he does sometimes spend more than I think he should on G for gifts) but he handed down his grandson's basketball goal. His grandson has spent many a long day playing basketball in his grandad's drive until he became a teenager with a life and a girlfriend, that is.
He actually told us a bit ago that we could have it, but my dad hadn't had a chance to move it to our yard until yesterday. When we came home G was so excited to get out there but we didn't have a basketball at our house because the Upward ball she received this year, and the one her grandad bought her were at my parent's house. Or so we thought. When I opened the front door there sat the Upward ball waiting for G to play.
Of course G didn't want to be outside by herself so I sat outside a while with her until the mosquitoes were just unbearable. So now G has a front yard basketball court to keep her busy after school!
