so, this is what's it's like to have a front yard

one of the best things about going home when you live in a small apartment is taking advantage of all the space, inside & out! 

Elijah loved being able to play outside and we loved that he was able to actually go outside in a safe, confined space. one day, while everyone else was gone, we decided it would be fun to "play house" and pretend like we actually belong in a real-life neighborhood. so we rode scooters & bikes, played street hockey, and walked around the cul-de-sac while daydreaming about our own future home 
{which won't happen for a looooong time :)}.

basically, it was everything i ever hoped to do one day with my little family. 
and even though it was just one afternoon, it made me so excited for a future away from student life.

When we moved to Surprise, we found that we could rent a house for about the same (less in some cases) than an apartment. We've owned and rented, and at the moment are in favor of renting! We'll own again someday, but not until we are set on staying somewhere for a long time. Anyway, just my two cents!
