We are "IN CONTRACT"


We are in contract on my dream come true house. We will never take another vacation or buy new furniture to put in the new home, but what we have is good enough and the house is worth it!!! I can't get a picture of the backyard to copy off the realtor's web page... But I'll tell you that it sits on a acre of woods... In the right school district... 7 miles to Dave's office, 14 to mine. It has a Mother-in-law suite that will be a fantastic guest room if I don't find the right college student to live in! Lots of updates, but the charm of an older home. The suburbs look pretty wonderful right now. I plan to spend a lot of time on the screened porch in the back, watching deer and birds... oh, and boys... and slathering calamine lotion on poison ivy. Is it heaven? It just might be!!!

Gorgeous!! I'm so happy for you. Sometimes the stars do align. . .

Big backyard is such a great mercy. Amazing what security and comfort a big fence can give if you have small people to fence in, and proprioceptive and vestibular input a-go-go! We used to call the swing set the "OT home school."
