We didn’t know what to expect, exactly, when we were invited by fellow soccer parents to a 4th of July celebration at their house. We knew them from games and from the brief, social interactions with them pre and post games. Still, it was not like we had developed a great camaraderie with them. That is until this evening.
What I thought would be a casual, 4th of July house party was in fact a full blow, rambunctious, over-the-top block party. We had a great time and so did the kids. It was more than I could have expected, and I’ve already caught myself thinking about how fun it’s going to be next year!
