These are my nieghbors. We love them.
They are far more than just neighbors. More like family. Steph and Carolyn are roommates and teachers at our school here, but to my kids they are like fixtures: steady companions on Sunday evenings and Thanksgiving and Saturday morning when we need eggs or a babysitter.
One of my favorite things about these pictures is that it is so evident how comfortable my kids are with both of these wonderful women. We are really going to miss them. And like any true family member, they are not only loved by my children (though that's all we could get in the photos), but are dear friends to me as well.
