Such good memories!
Our children have done so much of their growing up in this house we call home. Our youngest was a baby when we moved here, and now she just finished kindergarten! I can't believe that our son will be in 5th grade this fall~ he was in preschool when we bought this house! And, of course, I will not leave out our oldest daughter, especially since she is "stuck" in the middle of our other two! She was three when we moved here, and guess what? Fourth grade will be her class come September!
Sometimes living in a house that needs a lot of work can be overwhelming with all there is to be done! The to-do list is long, and you get tired of looking at your half-finished house. You long for the day when it's completed! :)
Well, I have been feeling this way lately, and then I was looking at some old pictures and realized something...we have such good memories here! Memories that were made even before we took out the avocado colored bathtub or took out any old carpet. There are so many times we shared as a family that had nothing at all to do with the state of our house, and when it all comes down to it, that is really the most important thing.
So as we continue to work on our house, I am going to try really hard to remember that even though our house isn't at all perfect or finished yet, it holds all of the memories of special times, memories of the way they were when they were little, and that in itself should be enough to add a little love into this love/hate relationship I have going with our house! :)
P.S. Does anyone know how it get your signature back when you inadvertently delete it? I keep doing that! :)
