The street we're living on at the moment is quite long and reasonably busy at one end but it's leafy and green with acre and half-acre blocks and lots and lots of trees.
Just past our house the street quietens down to local traffic only and the blocks turn into 5 and 10 acre lots and right at the end of the street there is a big open piece of farmland. It is so pretty and such an amazing contrast to where we've spent the last two years.
The kids and I took a wander up the street after school the other day - the sun was shining brightly but there were still puddles from the previous day's rain and the afternoon sun was just giving way to cool dampness. The kids loved playing in the spashes of sunlight that brightened the road.
And they oohed and aahed over the big trees, the horses and the pretty wildflowers. I'm loving watching them explore my favourite part of the world - home.
