Jeremiah and Matthew started showing up this fall, just to see what was happening in the once empty house on their block. They stroll about the house while high school kids cook. They ride their scooters in the street out front and play ball in the back yard. They have even agreed to rake the leaves from our giant avocado tree for a small fee. Here they are, eating cucumbers with lemon and salt. Yum. The veggie eating has begun.
