Goodbye Apartment, Hello Our New House!

So we finally did it.....we left our small 2 bedroom apartment and moved into our house. For those that don't know, Bill and I signed a contract back in January to have a house built. It was a big step in our lives but we knew that we didn't want to raise Scott in an apartment and space was becoming tight. We moved West near DeKalb and signed with a builder. It is a fairly new subdivision that is growing despite the downturn in the economy. We built a 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath home with a loft and a basement. We closed on the house on September 4th and started moving in that day. There is still a lot of boxes in our garage, but we have lots of time to get settled.
Our small town has around 4,000 people. There is a brand new elementary school. We have many of the same stores that we had before. My commute is longer, but well worth it. It's not so bad so far and there are many people that drive a shorter distance but are in the car longer. Bill's commute is the just about the same, but less traffic. We are all so happy to be here.
