Vail Daily letter: Great kids next door
Vail, CO, Colorado
We live next door to two wonderful kids. Although we have bumped heads with the parents on and off over the years, the neighbors’ kids can save the day.
Recently, we had some chalk on our fence, and the kids next door spent time cleaning it off and then waited for my wife and I to return home from our work day.
The two kids, Ben and Evie, must have waited breathlessly for hours for us to drive up (we got home at 7 p.m. that evening). They rushed out to tell us of their good deed, and we thanked them and told them how proud of them we were.
It seems that the good kids next door can help bridge the gap between the adults!
