It's been a fascinating experience for me. I've met some really, really neat people that I would never have met otherwise. I love my county and my neighborhood and love living here even more than I did before. It's helped me to see that it is possible to raise our children here with good manners and graces.
I've also been bitten by the bug that is county politics. While there might be a run for office in the distant future (after the girls go to college) it won't be soon.
What I am going to do now is try and explore more of my county. It's so easy to default and do activities in the city or in the nearby MoCo, but my county has a lot to offer too and I want to get to know it better.
So, this summer, I'm going to try and explore a different county park every week with the girls. I'll post a review here, based on the criteria I like to use for day trips. Maybe I can even get a shout out on another local county blogger who blogs about our beautiful county !
