Why? Change is in the air.
We are moving from Kansas to Indiana this summer, so I've been preoccupied.
Instead of reading about aging, I have been using my computer time to scout neighborhoods and high schools for my youngest. After I post this, I'm getting driving to the city of Evansville to explore it in person.
I am having trouble deciding where to live and what kind of home to buy.
Downtown holds appeal because I can attend cultural events and have easy access to the public library and YMCA. There are also more volunteer opportunities and employment opportunities in town.
If we buy a home in a suburban neighborhood ideal for teens, that works well--for just three years. That is a very long time for a teen but a blink of the eye for a couple in their fifties.
So do I do what's best for them now? Or best for the parents down the road? Or do we move after three years?
I'm hoping to find a neighborhood that is somewhere in between downtown and the suburb high school that appeals to my youngest.
