This whole thing started with an idea to move closer to our families, the babysitter, work, and all of our other activities. I suggested we rent a town home for a few years. That way, when we have another baby, there will be room. I saw prices for rent and thought 'we could buy one for that price.' So I started looking at purchasing a town home. Then I saw the prices for those and thought 'we could buy a house for that price.' So I contacted our long time family friend and realator, Jodee Smith, and told her my thoughts.
This house was the second house I looked at. When we walked to the front door, Jodee said "Lis, this is your house." I fell in love immediately. I took Kuso back to see it that night. It all fell into place (with the help of multiple emails, phone calls, and faxes) and now here we are!
Our neighbors are very nice. The Bishop of the new ward stopped by to introduce himself the day we were moving in. Other ward members have stopped by to introduce themselves. I feel comfortable where we are at and feel like "everything happens for a reason" is true.
If you are ever in our neck of the woods, feel free to come visit! Call first...I might need to clean up a bit!
