That sounds about what we would like to have close by. My husband wants close walking trails and park area to take the boys and I would like the schools close by like we have here. It sounds like a very nice neighborhood and quiet. We live right outside of Charlotte, NC and don't won't to culture shock ourselves or our boys. I will have to do some research into that area. Unfortunatley, my husband and I are kind of going into blind territory here. Are the nearby schools good schools? Also, what type of grocery shopping is nearby? Is it exspensive to live in that area? So sorry for all the questions. I appreciate you answering back :) Thanks for your time Michael! Hope to hear from you soon.
Actually, we don't know. Neither I or my husband have eer been to Portland. I have an aunt and two cousins that live in California so I've been there. Do you have any suggestions for a new family to the area with two boys who will 11 and 9 years old? Thanks for writing back!

Ladybugs move slowly now, they are still getting warm but they are out! If you are interested check out this site to see some laby bug pictures. http://www.cafepress.com/PrismImagery
If you do run across a hatching please do not disturb the ares so they will come back next year. Thanks Donna Bender
