We have a very sweet neighbor who has befriended our family.  Mary has had us for delicious meals, lets the girls come into her yard whenever they want, helped them plant their “own” big pots of flowers in her back yard, brings us homemade treats, has babysat and lets us eat her kale and other greens from her garden.  In May, we went with her to the Art Institute and Chicago Cultural Center.  Today, we had another outing with her to the aquarium.  It was so much fun for everyone!  We’re really going to miss her when we move!
