Number 4...a true neighborhood!

May sound a bit strange but yes...Im VERY excited about my neighborhood!  I haven't had a true neighborhood since I was little so Im happy to finally be giving one to my children.  I love driving through and seeing all the kids playing, people waving and now all the Halloween decorations.  Its such a great feeling!!  Where we live now is NOT kid-friendly at all, so it will be nice for them to have a place where they can have friends.  


  1. There are advantages and disadvantages to living out on a piece of property all your own - and the disadvantage is not having other kids for your kids to play with. Your kids will love being able to have playmates!

  2. I don't think it sounds strange at all! I think it's a wonderful item on your countdown. =)

    A good neighborhood is awesome! It's wonderful to have that sense of community. =) A place where kids can play and make friends.

    I have belonged to good communities and not so good ones. Good ones are GREAT to live in! Everyone has a since of pride in the homes and take care of them. There are neighborhood get-togethers, and most everyone has a since of family and family friendliness about them.

    Not so good ones are much different. No one has a sense of community. It's everyone for themselves. People let their lawns and homes go down the drain. And people will let their own kids run the streets all day and night, and not give 2 cents about it (let alone about your kid).

    A good neighborhood is a wonderful thing! And around my area, the Ryan Homes Neighborhoods have all been great communities to live in. =)

  3. Two days! TWO DAYS!! I'm excited for you. We meet for the first time with NVR today. I am not excited for me.

  4. YAY Tammi!!! Its will be fine! And its one step closer to your own countdown! :)
