Fall is officially upon us!

The kids are back to school, and soon the leaves will change, which means Thanksgiving and Halloween will be here quicker than you realize. This time of year is always a welcome transition, however, as I feel inspired to purge the house, attempt new recipes and focus on new projects – both at home and at work.

Personal Note

I cannot believe how fast the summer flies – especially when we are having so much fun! It’s back to school for the boys, but not before one last camping trip the The Gorge in Washington to see Dave Matthews – Tyson’s first concert. He had a blast!

Austin and Tyson are both excited to return to school… something I will cherish while it lasts. Austin loves seeing his friends and discovering new things. For instance, one night at dinner, he was trying to figure our division and how it works – not bad for a seven year old! For Tyson, he is excited to explore this whole, new world called Kindergarten: new kids, toys and adventures.

I think this is going to be a fantastic school year for the boys. When they fall asleep in under five minutes, I know they are having a blast!

As you get ready for fall, keep in mind that affording a home of your own is possible. All you need is some financial planning, a good realtor and a knowledgeable mortgage broker on your side. Fall is a great time for change – especially if that change is a new home you can all your own. Contact me today to start planning!

Coming up next month
