sunnylady303 Posted September 7, 2012 Share Posted September 7, 2012 I was cleaning the kitchen and my girls were outside on the porch cutting the feathers on our chickens' wings for me. I glanced out and saw a police car drive by slowly, back up, come up our driveway. DD6 comes running in all panicked. She is scared of police officers. I don't know why. He said that our neighbors behind us who are kind of stuffy, know everything people, had called 911 because they heard a child yelling, "Help! Help!" The girls had been outside for maybe 10 minutes tending the chickens and I would have heard them if they had been yelling. I asked them anyway and they said they hadn't been yelling. DD6 asked with big eyes if she was not allowed to yell help if they were playing. He said she was allowed and it was fine but sometimes other people might worry. He asked if there were other homeschooled kids around - he said he assumed we homeschooled. My 8YO assured him that we did. I told him that my neighbors up the hill (who are our close friends) homeschool and they are actually closer to the neighbor's house who called. I offered to call them and check. I got ahold of them and their kids had been inside all morning and were accounted for. We both have goats so I'm wondering if they heard them? At any rate the officer asked if he could come in and look around for a moment which I thought was weird. I hesitatingly asked him why he needed to, not that it was a problem and he said so that he could say he had checked it out. He walked two steps in the living room, looked around, saw DDs' school things everywhere and walked back out. He offered to let the girls sit in the police car and turn on the lights but they didn't want to. He turned the lights on for them. He seemed nice but it was all really weird and made me uncomfortable. I know police are there to help but after all the CPS drama we went through a couple of years ago, I just want them to stay away!
