Looking at houses

We have lived in an apartment for the last 6 years.  I am so ready to be in a house now.  I can't wait to have a backyard for my kids to play in, to be able to paint walls and just to have a house of my own.  I am getting excited that our next move will be to a house and not another apartment.  I think a house just has a different feel than an apartment.  Don't get me wrong we have lived in some nice apartments, but I'm glad were getting a house.  Once we get into a house we will be getting a puppy soon after.  That'll be a good thing for the boys to have.  A puppy to grow up with them.  So I am excited that we are starting to look at houses for our family.
