This is the field…where me and my dad used to play in…the summer

when I was walking we were at the park

904

Oh! And this is a house that I think is a mansion but it’s not.

11

We have a community garden and it’s near our house

902

We already have a washer and a dryer … but I’ve been in there lots of times

900

When there wasn’t a store there, our street was so quiet.

72

Part of the reason why we moved to our new house was because the church was walking distance.

326

Here’s my neighbor’s house.

325

And here’s this, like, triangle-square park. Um, you can walk your dogs, or just play.

…another angle of [the park]…

323

This neighbor, I don’t know their name, but, a mini-book library so that kids, or parents, can walk up to the library and ta

Here’s a picture of a side street.

We have narrow streets and stuff, but that truck right there never moves – it’s always there.

…my favorite corner store…

Sometimes my parents drive me to school and other times I ride the bus.

So, this sign, I don’t know how old it is but it is really old. And I have a bunch of dreams where I’m down here and I hav

That is my evil neighbor. She hates us and she hasn’t even met us.

71

We have a little park in my neighborhood but it’s a couple miles away so from here we bike there.

12

I play on this block with friends.

38

I just thought this tree in my neighborhood looked cool.

34

I thought the trees across the street from my house looked cool

My neighbor, Bob, hangs flags along his fence.  He has a garden too.

31

I live near this stone house

We hang out. So what we do, I invite him to my house and in return, he invites me to his house. We like to play Grand Theft Au

That was supposed to be a rosemary tree.

We had new neighbors just move in. They like to work on their cars a lot and my dad likes to talk to them.

58

It is my neighbors banana tree or something. I really like it!

57

I can go wherever I want, as long as it is only a block away.  

52

I can go anywhere I want as long as it is a block away.

51

I like to know how to get around so that I can help people.

75

This is from the store across the street.

That’s my favorite house on my street. I like the way it looks.

307

And since my neighborhood has, like, a community garden, I took a picture of the community garden.

67

That’s little juvenile, where the little boys go.

That’s big juvenile. Its like 5 blocks from where I live.

Oh! I remember, this was a goldfish that ants were… taking over
