With my second mouth to feed showing up a few weeks ago (my wife, being the fourth mouth behind me, is capable of feeding herself), I ask that you forgive my momentary dad freak out here.
Wilmette sounds nice.
My wife doesn't want to move... I don't want to move. We swear by our duplex-down lifestyle in Ravenswood. But, there are some pretty attractive short sales and straight up re-sale single family homes that look good from $400,000 to $450,000. The schools, man... the schools.
Can anybody tell me what it's like living in the western part of Wilmette a little northeast of Centennial Park? How is it driving to the north side of Chicago? Where would we hang out most with the kids as they get older? I'm pretty familiar with the lakefront... but how's it out west?
