I started looking at apartments in Virginia not long ago. My husband and I were in the process of getting a divorce, and it was just too hard to live in the same town as he did, especially when I had always felt like an outsider there. I wanted to look at only the best apartments in Forest VA for a couple of reasons. The main one is because I have a huge support structure there between my parents, two sisters and a few friends. I also wanted my children to go to a great school, and I knew the educational system there is second to none because I had went there myself not all that long ago.
What surprised me was that I was able to find a four bedroom apartment. I have three children, and I was hoping that I would be able to find at least a three bedroom. I knew that it was going to take some convincing to get my oldest two children to share a room, so I was so happy to have found an apartment that actually has four bedrooms. There were even two full baths, which would definitely be an upgrade from the one we all had to share before.
When I showed the kids the apartment online, they were really excited that they would each have their own room. That was not the only thing they were happy about though. They looked at everything they would be able to do on the grounds, and they were literally in heaven about it. They had never had daily access to a swimming pool before, and this one is huge too. There are so many things they can do both on the grounds as well as off since we have so many relatives here. I thought that this was going to be a scary move, but it is anything but that!
