Neighborhood block party

Carving soap and meeting neighbors

Recently, I coached soap carving. Our church, Ankeny Presbyterian Church in Ankeny, Iowa, was throwing an outdoor block party for our neighborhood — hot dogs, a bounce castle, doughnuts made to order, even a fire truck. One of our neighbors offered to play guitar and sing, so we had live music, too.
