Actually, I was brought up in the suburbs, but I still consider this my hometown.
And in all my years here, I've seen this town grow a lot.
I've heard that lots of people are moving to this region nowadays.
They sure are!
This town used to be surrounded by fields and forests.
Now it's all housing developments.
And every year there's more and more construction on the outskirts of town.
Housing prices are up, too.
The mortgage on the house I own would be twice today what I paid originally.
