We're in the final stages of moving from one home to another on this end. The move represents a significant upgrade in every area of our lives. Once we're unpacked and settled in I'll blog about the entire journey. Until then, here are aerial photographs of our old neighborhood as compared to our new neighborhood. The respective houses are shown in each of the photographs.
The Old Neighborhood: corner liquor store, an "adult" store a block and a half away, half-way houses, hordes of mice, and police on your block every week making drug busts.
The New Neighborhood: forests, fresh air, friendly neighbors, and within easy walking distance to the kids' schools.
