Goodbye Suburbia, Hello City!
Well after today we will officially be done as suburbanites ( I know its not a word but thats what I do, I make up words, Its my blog). This will definitly be interesting raising our family in the city. I am looking forward to it though, it will be an adventure. Right now on the weekends, we say "So what should we go do today?" Then spend the rest of the day thinking about it and end up ordering a pizza and movie and staying home. There is just so much more to do when you live in the city. It will be fun to go to the coffee shop on the corner and a festival right up the street, or little resturants everywhere near by. I also want my boys to be cultured and encounter all types of people with all types of diffrent backgrounds, religions, and ways of life. I believe it is so important, and although the suburbs is great for family life it is also very sheltered and I am just not convinced that it is the "better way" for a child. now others may have their own opinion but I think that the more people and experiance a child/person has, the more well rounded they become. When I moved away from my small town and moved to Chicago, it was a reality check but also a new and exciting experiance. Well I will blog about living in the city with two small children, who knows, maybe my mind will change after living there for awhile =). So, Nic's grandmas left this great house that has so much history along with it. Its Amazing. Organizing all of her almost 90 years of stuff. We found some amazing things that she collected from all over, I found a calander from 1924! Nic has been working REALLY hard to fix it (It needs a lot of work)not only for us to live there but in honor of his Grandma's life. I want to take care of this house for the short time we are there, make it beautiful but keep the old charm. I think its important to keep the history with the house. Cheese is super excited... Today is his last day at this school and and told everyone that he is moving to the space needle! haha. I thought that was awesome. Ok well THE VIEW is on. I will update soon.
