Somehow my house has gotten designated as the local hangout spot for every boy between the age of 8 and 13...I just came downstairs and there were 5 boys sitting at my computer playing a game, my Matthew outside crying because the boys were saying HE was being mean, Ben upstairs, and Zachary OUTSIDE! ARGH!!! I chased them all off as nicely as I could. They were in our garage playing with toys, took all the bikes out and started riding them in the cul-de-sac, and then just left them on the sidewalk.
Wow. That would make me a little bit angry. I would tell them that if they want to play fine. But they need to put the toys back when they are done or they can't play with them anymore. And I would talk to them about making Matthew cry and Zach being outside. Tell them they need to follow your rules if they are going to be playing at your house. And good luck!

Wow. I would not be able to put up with that. It sounds like some of those kids don't have boundaries. Where my sister lives, in a cul-de-sac, there are a couple kids that just come over when they want and take out the toys in the garage and do whatever they want. Their parents don't watch them and obviously haven't given them boundaries. Hopefully your whole summer isn't like that.
I would be setting some boundaries. We have a few neighbor kids who try to tourment our dog Gracie and we had to tell them if she ever got off her lead she could really hurt them. Boundaries have to be set
