Our new neighbors are about our age and have had their last two children in their 40's. They moved in about a month ago or so. I knew that they were from a town next to ours so clearly just getting a bigger house in a quieter neighborhood. I saw mom and fourth child, a baby, maybe 14 months or so, a couple of times but other than that, they seem to live indoors. Meanwhile, dad and the other three kids are outside all of time. Both parents seem athletic but he's the one hiking down to the river with his kids and hanging out with them outside. A woman who drives a car identical to mom's is there quite a bit and she looks like mom so I'm thinking sister. So a month into it, we are waving as we pass by. Dad has opened their fence so that he can use our driveway. That's fine because they don't mind the occasional poultry infraction. Their cat is on our property but not much since one of the turkeys cornered it. We keep an eye out for them mostly because we don't want to hit a kid or the cat with our car and every time we leave, we pass right by their yard so we've had a few interactions and said hello quite a bit. I'm leaving eggs, etc. Neighborly stuff. He stopped me as I was coming back down the drive with the mail today and we chatted. I referred to the family a couple of times but he only talked about himself and referred once to one of the daughters but never to his wife or family. I was going to bring over baked goods early on but never ever saw mom so ended up not and now it seems awkward. Is this normal? The people who owned the house before them had a child every 1-2 years and we saw her regularly. This woman is just, well, gone and dad acts like she's not there either. Any ideas on how to approach her later? Just say hi like she hasn't been there for a while? It's weirding me out that I don't even know her name. It's very important that we have a good relationship. There are very few people on our street and I want things to be comfortable.
