Lucas St. John, 3; Brooklyn Wright, 4; Calli Milioto, 3; and Calli’s sister Darien, 6, played in their Concord neighborhood while Lucas’s mom Sarah Woods watched them Friday afternoon. The four often spend afternoons together and were excited they could finally go outside again. They played on their scooters and bikes and then took a walk to a pond near their neighborhood to see if the frogs were out. They didn’t see any that day.
