Building Our Nest in Eagle

My wife, Meredith, and I have been searching for a home in Eagle for the past eight months or so. We’ve been in love with the town from the moment we came to the Treasure Valley. When I started at Eagle Dental Care a little over a year ago, the desire to make our permanent home here grew even stronger. It wasn’t a quick process, but I’m proud to say we’ve found our family home. The real estate process went a lot smoother than we could ever have hoped. We were lucky enough to work with a great Realtor who made it painless. Moving, on the other hand, has included more than its fair share of headaches. Never having to pack and unpack everything again is all the more reason to really plant our roots in the new home.

weather in Eastern Idaho — it’s been so warm that I find myself worrying when the snow will arrive. Maybe we just got lucky this year, but I haven’t counted out the cold just yet. Spring is a time of new beginnings, so it’s exciting to be able to spend this one in a new home. I’ve moved a lot during my life, but this move feels different. It feels permanent. You never know what the future will hold, but I get the sense that we’ll look back on this transition a decade from now and smile. We couldn’t be happier to be here in Eagle, and I don’t see that changing any time soon. I’m excited to turn my attention to sprucing up the office once we get fully settled,. There are a few changes I’ve been hoping to make for a while now, but one decorating project at a time is more than enough for me. Luckily, the Eagle Dental Care teamwill be able to lend a hand during the process of improving our office. Another bonus is that it won’t involve any packing and unpacking. I’ve done enough of that for one year.

As we ate some food fromDickie’s Barbeque Pit on our first night in the new home — if you think we were going to do dishes on the first night, think again —Meredith and I took a moment to recognize just how lucky we are to be a part of this community. Avy, our oldest, will be starting first grade in the fall, and we timed the move so she’ll be totally settled for the beginning of the school year. She and Jett will finish up the year at their current school, and we’re hoping this will be the only school change for many years to come. The house itself is quickly becoming a playground for the kids. We have a bigger yard and more space than before. Once we get rid of the seemingly infinite number of boxes, they’ll have even more room to play. Personally, I’m looking forward to getting the fire pit in the backyard going. It won’t be long before it’s the perfect weather to roast marshmallows. Compared to last year — and especially compared to the

It may not feel like we’ve had much of a winter, but I still want to wish everyone a happy spring season. If it ends up snowing in mid-March, you can blame me for jinxing us all.
