I like that you know everyone. Some people are kinda rude, however it is like that everywhere. Most of the adults are cool, but if you really want to be someone... play a sport and be good at it.

I LOVE our little town of Bells. We have one stop light, everyone is your friend. I have not met one single mean person here. We moved to Bells specifically for the school district, which is top notch.
