We haven’t had any difficulty attracting young households with young children 
or young people planning to have children. We’ve had 3 babies in the last 2 
years. 4 actually but one moved. We haven’t had people move in with the middle 
ages — 6 and up. We do have a tot lot, an indoor playroom, and are building a 
fort structure on the SE corner which is the size of a small house lot and is 
grass and trees.

The problem in DC is the school system which not good to put it mildly. Unless 
student-age children have gotten into charter schools or attend private school, 
the households move.
