When we left off last time, at the end of December, Ireland was off the table. So in January, we began looking at new homes to buy. Our realtor made some appointments, and we took a Saturday afternoon to look at some places in the Trumansburg area. First house...blah. Second house...meh. Fourth house...ugh. But house #3...I loved it. Brenna loved it (the other kids were out of town). Love might be too strong for Liz, but she thought it would work. Our realtor was amazed at the price.
We had decided in the spring to move from Ithaca to Trumansburg to get our kids in a different school district. Although it had been 2 plus years since the attack on our one daughter had taken place, it was clear she needed a new start in a new place.
