Friends; If I'm still working when Ella goes to kindergarten, her neighborhood friends will also be her school friends which wouldn't happen if we were commuting; And if I'm not still working when Ella goes to school, she will still get to go to Coppell schools which are INCREDIBLE if I do say so myself!!; No 20 minute commutes on an interstate for simple play dates!
1800 SQUARE FEET!!!!; I drive 3 minutes to school which means more sleep in the morning and getting home sooner :) I drive a total of 3 hours to and from school on the weekdays :(;
A backyard for Ella and a park and a duck pond down the street; A community feel where everyone knows everyone's business and you can't go to the grocery store without seeing someone you know as opposed to a big city feel. I've come to appreciate all of the small town stuff; Saving a great amount of money on toll tags and storage units; Still being easily accessible to all of the fun shops and food.
Anyway, the list goes on...we have wonderful people that we know and trust that own the house. They have a super smart 2nd grader (that just happened to be in my class for a while last year) haha! There is an extra room for guests and for another baby eventually. So we have one more week in our apartment and then we are on to our next adventure and ready to make more memories!
