"Terrific Suburban Life"

Everything here is very flat, but such is Houston for you. I remember moving from South Carolina, where the hills and trees swallowed your house if you weren't careful, and thinking: "They've replaced the trees and hills with highways and shopping malls." I've lived in the area for about 15 years now, and oh how it has grown! The trees that were once just saplings are large and provide plenty of shade on Houston summer days. The community pools are good for a little R & R as well. The subdivisions in and around Katy have grown and the school districts are growing to accommodate. There is a hospital going up just down the street at Barker Cypress and I-10. The flat terrain is perfect for riding bikes, taking trips to the numerous parks in the area, and walking your dogs. The people in the area are also very friendly. When I was younger, there were a lot of us kids running around playing games, and the parents of the area would gather outside in the cul-de-sac or in someone's backyard by the pool. While we played, they cooked food, had a few laughs, and enjoyed each other's company. The schools are great, and if you have business to attend to downtown, it is just 20 minutes away. I've loved living here. It's provided versatility and freedom, and a sanctuary of peace and quiet.
