Small-town living

We live in a small town in north-central Iowa. Although I've got a short drive to town to go to work, church and shopping, there are advantages to small-town living.

Last night we saw a deer walking across the street from us. Just casually strolling through one yard, across the street and into another yard. I often see rabbits in our yard or in others' yards.

Tomorrow there will be a Fourth of July parade - right down our street. Tomorrow night, the fireworks will be going off directly overhead. They are set off about a block away from our home. It's the most awesome show. ;-)

If we were to move into town (to save traveling time and gas), I would miss the little things like this.
