I don't think her kids were offended. I think she was using every possible reason and excuse she could think of because she was trying to force me to comply.
The only contact we've had previously was when the husband gave the kids some matchbox cars one day when we were all standing outside. He seemed like a nice guy.   I haven't heard anything more but I did notice that when her daughter was outside yesterday both parents stood on the porch staring out over the backyard, arms crossed. No idea if that had anything to do with me but it seemed a little strange. I honestly think if they have a problem with seeing my kids...
My kids stripped down in our backyard this afternoon to play in the hose while I was finishing up cleaning the floors in the house.

It is hard to feel like the only person responsible for your family's well being while you are spread too thin and unsure of where to go or what to do from here.    Sometimes where we end up is a result of the way we've been taught to act and think our whole lives and it is incredibly difficult to change that or know how to.    Do you have any resources available to you that would be beneficial? Finding a way to get into counseling can help bring about a snowball...
