and The School Year Begins

Where does the time go?  All at once it seems I am the mother of 2 young ladies in middle school and a boisterous lad in second grade!

I am very pleased that my family lives in the master-planned community of Bridgeland in Cypress, Texas, where we have an amazing school district.

If you are looking to make that all important move, always consider the school district and the attendance zone.  Keep in mind if you are moving to a subdivision with lots of new construction, new schools or attendance zone changes are inevitable.  If you are past the age where schools seem unimportant in your decision making; remember good schools improve a home’s resale value.
