Goodbye Phoenixville

Well the movers left yesterday with all our stuff. We won't see it again for a month. I'm sure the time will go by fast, but I can't wait. Right now we're hangin' out at my mom's and we'll spend the weekend with her and my sister's family who is coming today.

I'm gonna miss the charm of suburban Philadephia, especially the rolling hills, tall trees and little farms all over. They don't have any of those in Houston. Here's what I won't miss... the Schuylkill Expressway, that south Philly accent, months of freezing weather, and the prices. I was pleasantly surprised to see that when Forbes ranked the best counties in the country to raise a family, Montgomery county, PA where I live ranked 9th and Chester county (I'm right on the border between the two) ranked 10th. Fantastic schools, good shopping, short commutes and not-too-outrageous home prices went into the ranking. Great education is one thing Philly excels at, for sure.

Sorry it didn't work out for us to get together again before you leave. You'll have to let us know when you come back for a visit--maybe we can plan a blogging get-together. Enjoy the time with your family!

Best wishes on your move to your new home, from a Montco lurker!

Can you still be a cyber "Mainline Mom"? :-)
