The adventure of life is to learn. The goal of life is to grow. The nature of life is to change. The challenge of life is to overcome. The essence of life is to care. The secret of life is to dare. The beauty of life is to give. The joy of life is to love! ~William Ward

Probably the last major development to be built..

My back yard used to back up to woods. A few years ago a developer bought the property and began disturbing our peace. This is the second to the last section of these houses to be built. The last section butts up to our property (that's the part at the bottom of the photo) but there'll be a section of woods, maybe 20', between us and them and it's downhill does that help. I can't help but be a bit melancholy when I look at this though, because my boys grew up playing in the woods that used to be here. They made bike trails, and had a climbing tree, and played paintball. We took walks back here to the county park across the street. That's a public golf course at the top of the photo, it's within walking distance from the house. It's, also, the hill that we used to sled on in the winter.
