The Last Post...

...from this place! Tonight is the last night we are spending in our apartment on the west end of Richmond. Tomorrow we are moving to a house we are renting in a neighboring county! :)

While this will be a new start and we are super interested to see what God has in store for us, it is also a bit bittersweet.

In each room we have such sweet memories. We have memories of family meals and family game nights in our dining room. Giggles and fun in the playroom. Lots of living in the living room.

I bedrested in this home.. desperately hoping to keep Solomon in as long as safely possible.

We brought him home from the hospital here.

Xander took his first steps here.

I spent countless hours in various parts of our home nursing my sweet baby boy.

Solomon crawled here. Xander said his first words here.

My girls have had SO much fun here. Julianne and Lainey started to learn to swim in our community pool. We spent lots of time on the playground.

We hosted birthday parties here. We had company here. My aunt came here last Thanksgiving. It was also Solomon's first Thanksgiving.

We also cried a lot of tears here recently.

We even had a bit of excitement (and stress!) A hurricane AND an earthquake!

But the good has far outweighed the bad.

Each of our various homes have had numerous memories and stories within them.

I can't wait to see what this next home has in store for us.

....As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. ~Joshua 24:15

I know just what you're feeling! We moved a week ago Saturday. Our old house was my first with my husband, and where I brought Thomas home. Where I realized I was a grown up. (THAT one threw me, can you believe it hit *after* I was married?)

But we're so excited about this house! Our little farm, where we hope to raise all of our children. And, God-willing, we'll live here until we're old and pass it on to them.
