Victoria, Finley, and I made a trip up to East Lansing to look at houses this past weekend. Luckily, Victoria's mom was also able to come along to help keep an eye on Finley while we toured houses.
|Nice big yard, but this one just needed too much work!|
We looked at a lot of houses in East Lansing, Lansing, and Okemos. We found quite a few that we didn't like, and at least three or four that were fairly promising. We'll keep you posted!
I also stopped by campus, which -- I have to admit -- was more beautiful than I expected. The older buildings north of the river that runs through campus were particularly nice and oh so classic American university campus-like.
One thing we're really excited about is that my Uncle John and Aunt Jean live in nearby Okemos, and my cousin D lives in the area, too. I haven't spent much time with any of them since my childhood and look forward to getting to know them as adults. John and Jean had us over to their home for brunch: eggs, sausage, English muffins, fantastic fresh fruit, and great coffee. I'm sure the continental breakfast at the Holiday Inn wouldn't have come close!
