The Bond family of Rancho Sienna isn’t spooky – they just love to have fun
The Bond family of Rancho Sienna dressed up as the Addams family this past Halloween, and they looked the parts perfectly. But while the fictional Addams family was not on particularly close terms with their neighbors, the Bond family has experienced just the opposite since moving to Rancho Sienna in 2015.
“We are really blessed with great neighbors,” says Erica. “Everyone is very warm and looks out for each other, and we’ve made some great friends since we moved here.”
Erica and her husband, Alex, had bought their first home in Leander before their two children were born. With the arrival of daughters Whitney and Gwyneth, they decided it was time to look for a home with more space, and a community that offered more amenities and felt more family-friendly.
“We were driving around with our real estate agent when we stumbled into Rancho Sienna by accident,” Erica recalls. “It so happened that the Harvest Festival was going on that day, and it was a wonderful time to discover the community. We toured the model homes and found a perfect home that was already ready, by Chesmar.”
The Bond family has since enjoyed the Harvest Festival and other events at Rancho Sienna over the past four years.
“We love the big events, and we also enjoy just getting together with neighbors on our cul-de-sac,” Erica said. “Halloween is one of our favorite holidays, and we have fun all throughout the year.”
“We love living so close to the school, especially now that our daughters go there,” Erica said.
Erica has become closely involved in supporting the school, organizing the first annual Rancho Sienna Elementary Christmas Shopping Event in 2018, followed by another shopping fundraiser in the spring of 2019.
The first two shopping events raised nearly $7,000 for the school, helping it purchase math instructional tools for all grade levels.
With this year’s shopping event set for Saturday, December 7, the school hopes to raise enough money to purchase a digital reading curriculum.
Meet Erica and support Rancho Sienna Elementary by coming to the shopping event, which takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on December 7. More than 60 vendors, including several Rancho Sienna residents, will be selling unique handmade goods. There will also be food trucks, photos with Santa, and free face painting to enjoy.
