We’ve had some crazy ups and downs living an agrarian life, but now we’re going back to leafy, 75-97% white suburbia. Yes, the rest is “mixed race” and “Asian”, depending on the suburb.
The full transition (sale, buy, move) probably won’t happen until the next calendar year, but it means a chance to keep everyone healthy (because buh-bye rural commute and rural mom commute, both completely health decimating), leisure time for the parents and unstructured play time for the kids, and just more opportunities for organic social life because it’ll be a lot more people even though we still get to have “acreage”.
We both had a view of rural life that was covered in nostalgia and we’re a lot more clear eyed now. So another journey in our life together begins.
