= marks the location of this home
Ours is a very mixed neighborhood (typical to Foster, RI) with older homes as well as recently constructed log homes and newer mixed styles. There is also a small family owned firewood processor on our street as well as a backwoods pizza parlor on another beautiful pond within a mile of our home.
Something about ourselves
My wife and I are both elementary teachers in Rhode Island public schools edging our way toward retirement and - hopefully - world travel. We are the parents of four wonderful children and grandparents to three. We have three crazy dogs who roam the property freely (when allowed) and a sixteen year old cat named Bonkers (who mostly lounges around the house all day). Obviously, taking care of a few animals would not be a problem. My oldest daughter is a veterinarian and lives five minutes away, so support is there if you need it.
