5. What sounds do you hear from your house on a daily basis?

6. What do you like to look at out of your window?

7. What is your favorite neighborhood walk?

8. What sights, sounds or smells do you notice coming from our house?

9. Tell me about one of our other neighbors that you know.

10. Are you interested in babysitting? (Make sure to tell mom and dad the answer to that one).
