I looked out the window and what did I see?

The other day the kids and I were reading books in the front room. I turned and looked out the window as someone ran past the house and hid in the bushes across the street. I pointed them out to the kids and we watched them for a while.
This was from across the street.
This girl ran across the street and laid down in our front yard. The kids were really going crazy.
I think she saw me taking pictures of her, because she looked right as me as she hid behind our tree in the front yard.

They fired a few shots at who knows who and my kids wanted to go outside to get a better look but I didn't let them. As far as I can tell, they were just a group of kids playing army and we had the best trees to hid behind.

I wasn't thrilled with the idea of these guys hanging out in my yard with Bebe (Is that how you spell it?) guns or whatever they were using and shooting it at people, but they did any way. After a bit we left and went to the Library. There were about 5 more kids in their "Army Clothes" and guns walking on the street. They didn't look as official as these two did and that is how I came to the decision they were just a bunch of kids playing around.

Um, those kids look pretty real. They shouldn't be shooting any type of gun in a neighborhood. That would make me a little nervous. Hopefully, it was a one day ordeal and not all summer.

I agree with everything you said. I decided that since no one knocked on my door and told me to lock everything and go downstairs, it was a good thing. They were there for about 5 hours. I left for a couple of hours so the kids could stop watching them and was surprised that they were still there when I came home.

At least you can say you have an exciting neighborhood? haha

If they are out there again I would call and report them or something. That could be dangerous and I'm sure it would freak out tons of little old ladies! ....poor little old ladies :( ...poor poor poor...

That would scare the life right out of me. They look pretty official.

But they should NOT be shooting anything, even bb's, in the neighborhood.

Maybe someone need to get them some laser tag stuff! that is really strange that it was that organised with just kids involved, I mean costumes? teams? Hopefully not a white supremacy group.
