It’s Moving Time…

lake-murray

As mentioned in the previous post we have decided to take our land search to Lexington South Carolina, a suburban city of Columbia. We have chosen to move here for several reasons including the excellent school district, outdoor activity, close proximity to Lake Murray and access to the city of Columbia.

While we are so excited to head to this amazing area of the country we have to bid a fine farewell to Beautiful Boise ID!

Thank You Boise!!!

Beautiful Boise loftandlearn

There are so many wonderful firsts that have occurred here in Boise that we will be forever grateful for. We completed our first year of school (kindergarten), ran a first, half & full marathon, started a life blog, started talking, completed first baseball season (love it) took our first major hike as a family of four as well as went river rafting & camping. Recovered from a major surgery, made new friends, learned to snowboard, climbed mountains, conceptualized the idea of our dream home estate and set the plans in motion and much more…

Thank you so much to Big Al’s in Meridian, Idaho for showing us the most amazing time. This was the perfect choice to help us celebrate Kingston’s 2 birthday on the 28th.

Big Al’s has everything a fun family could possibly want for a winter play day!!!

They have it all from Arcade games & bowling to gigantic screens to watch all types of sports while eating the best food! It can easily entertain everyone for an entire day.

We can’t wait to return…

The Importance of Outdoor Winter Play!

Here’s a fantastic article from the National Wildlife Federation about making sure your kids are bundled up safely and the importance of going outside! Outdoor activity is vital for healthy childhood development, even in the winter. Just make sure your little one is properly clothed when enjoying the winter wonderland!

A great idea to help your child learn how to lend a helping hand! | Volunteer

A great idea to help your child learn how to lend a helping hand!

Volunteering to Shovel Snow.

Kudos to Ace Loftus, 5 yrs old, who decided to volunteer and help his neighborhood by shoveling the snow for our block. There are several older couples and people who work long hours who benefit from having the sidewalk free and clear of ice and snow.

Great idea and effort Ace!
