Is this the promised land?

Our new hometown is lacking several things that I will miss: Target, Veteran's Parkway Burger King, a movie theater with stadium seating (and more than one screen). But, there are some things I will not miss. Taking more than three minutes to get anywhere, having to dial the area code every time one makes a phone call, and fire ants.

There are no fire ants here.

Ethan had an ant on him in the yard yesterday, and he started to panic. I explained to him that the ants here are not fire ants and that they do not bite. Joshua apparently overheard this because later in the day Lauren was running from a bee, and Joshua called out, "Lauren, don't worry . . . the bees don't sting here!"
