Matthew and I have just started the process of making a decision. We are pondering the idea of buying land and building a home, putting up some out-buildings and having a little hobby farm. We are in the very early thinking stages. There are quite a few things that have to "line-up" correctly first. This will all take a while but I'm starting to get excited about the possibilities.
I've lived in Hudson all my life minus a few years here and there, basically I'm a Hudsonite. Matthew is from the very southern part of SW Wisconsin and has about as much background info. as I do. Not much. We are considering a couple of spots Glenwood City or Osceola. I like them both for different reasons and am starting to have a preference between the two. One is in St.Croix county and one is in Polk county. I'd like to think about the two county fairs as Isaiah (and Mama & Papa) is getting pretty excited about starting 4H this year. I've only been to St. Croix's fair but the Polk co. fairgrounds looked awfully impressive. I know nothing about the school districts either. I'll probably have to do some detective work in that area as well. Do any of you "out there" know about either community? Do you have any feelings about either school district or county fair? It would be so cool if anyone has an opinion. If you do have personal experience with either place let me know what you think of it. Thanks a bunch!
