The Grandkid Draw

By Jim Arnal, February 18, 2019

Molly and Mert have one of the best reasons there is to move- 2 year old twin grandchildren who they spend several days a week with. They decided to move from Gresham to be closer and we helped them buy their new home just minutes away from the kids. Less car time, more twins time. What’s better than that?
