Our house is in a semi-rural area in Maine. We have over an acre of land with a pond. We have a large, grassy yard with beautiful stone-walled gardens throughout the property. A forest surrounds our yard. On one side of our yard, we can see a grassy field peeking through the trees. We love sitting at our dining room table for breakfast and watching the sun rise over the field.
We have three bedrooms and two bathrooms. This child's bedroom will overlook the pond and gardens. We have two living room/family rooms. One upstairs and one downstairs.
It is about 10-15 minutes for us to get to our local beach. We frequently go for evening walks along the beach with our beagle, Sadie. The beach is a wide, sandy beach. The water is shallow for quite some distance from the shore, which makes it ideal for children to splash around. There are quite a few city parks, hiking trails, and fishing spots within a short driving distance. We are also close to shopping areas and other amenities.
Our community has an excellent, highly-sought-after school system. There are also good private and STEM schools close by that are options depending on this child's interests.
David's Family: Most of David's family lives only a few hours away. We get together frequently. This child will be their first Grandchild. David has an older sister and a younger brother. When we all get together, we go to sporting events, attend concerts, cookout, go to the beach, or put together puzzles. Food tends to be a focal point of all our gatherings. David's maternal Grandma lives close by and makes sure we have Polish kielbasa, golumpki and other traditional foods.
Aly's Family: Aly's family lives farther away, but we talk frequently and visit several times a year. Aly has an identical twin sister and an older brother. Aly's Dad and Step-Mom, brother, and sister all live in Minnesota. Aly's Mom lives in South Carolina. Aly's brother is married and has two sons. When we are all together we spend as much time with our nephews as we can. We all play board games such as Scrabble, Carcassonne, Settlers of Catan, or Ticket to Ride. Some of the games get very competitive but we always have fun!
Both of our families are excited to welcome a child into the family!
