I have been trying to figure out where I am going to move my family. I love the Chicago area, I love this house, but I want and need a change in my life. The kids are getting to be school age and if I move them soon enough we can get them settled and ready for the beginning of their school careers. Right now we are doing the prep work so that the boys will have the greatest success from day 1. It’s a lot of hard work for them but they are soaking it all up. I love seeing them learn new things. They get so excited. So after a bunch of back and forth debates on what the best city is for my family I’ve choosen Denver, Colorado. I bought a house there a few months ago. It is being renovated right now and it’s almost done. My plan is to sell this mansion, sell a lot of the furniture and things that go with this house and get ready to move us by September 1st. The boys’ school will start the middle of September so I really feel like this is my best time. Big deep breath. I have prayed and prayed on this decision. One of the main factors is that Alex’s doctors are all there. He is getting much better, we fight a small infection here and there but he is doing great. The house I bought is in the northwest side and has a lot of great amenities to the property. I’m actually downsizing if you guys can believe it. Those that have seen my Chicago house folder on Facebook can see how much space I have now. Our home is HUUUGEEE. I don’t need this much house. I need room for me, the kids, and a few bedrooms for guests. That’s it. No more crazy yard space, no more lake life. Okay, I’m obviously not going to be mowing my own lawn Lol That’s not the kind of downsizing I’m doing. I’m $till a $poiled brat. It’s time I just settle into dad life. I think this is my best option and we are going for it. I actually have several friends interested in my house and will be working with a local broker to help get this house on the market soon. I already have a survey done and the house inspected. The 4 things that needed to be updated or fixed are getting done in the next 2 weeks so I will be fully ready to say LIST IT!
Being closer to the west coast is going to have a lot of advantages for me. It’s also a great part of the country and I’m really looking forward to exploring the city.
I wish I had more of a huge update but I don’t. Oh wait, I’m going to Comic Con next weekend, that’s some news. Umm, I think that’s about it. I did upload a ton of new photos and videos on our Family Facebook page. Go check those out. We have done a few Periscopes and Facebook live videos. Those are also on there. Life is quiet. I love it. Hope you guys are enjoying your summer!
