Good-bye 57

On Monday, we say good-bye to our first home.

As newly weds, we moved in with hope of dreams fulfilled. Many have been and many await at our new home. Here are a few memories of our almost 7 years at 57:

-We hosted Thanksgiving, with grocery-store rotisserie chicken and boxed stuffing.

-Our neighbours. When you share roofs and driveways in a town home, it is important that your neighbours are not annoying (you aren't). I will not miss having nowhere to pile snow, but I will miss our small driveway!

-BBQs on our deck, our real living room, with family and friends.

-Learning how to garden, and realizing, like many things in life, it is a journey not a destination.

-Having my water break on December 23rd for an early Christmas present, Rylyn, 2 weeks before her due date.

-Giving birth to Addisyn at home.

-Learning how to cook gluten-free and realizing I love to bake bread.

-Walks to the park and under doggies on the swings.

-Having PoultryFest and Smithville fair in our back yard.

We hope that we have more opportunities to love and build heavenly treasures in our new home than we have had in this one.

2 Corinthians 5:1 We know that our body—the tent we live in here on earth—will be destroyed. But when that happens, God will have a house for us. It will not be a house made by human hands; instead, it will be a home in heaven that will last forever.

The irises bloomed
Peonies (happy I have a bush at the new house too)
While I was taking pictures, Addy decided to eat mulch

We have been busy with some legal complications relating to our move and, of course, packing. We are trusting in God that all will come through at the eleventh hour. I look forward to blogging more about our adventure of Moving Smart with our time, money and sanity on rainy days during the summer!

One of our last (funny) memories at 57...
Rylyn: "I want to watch Caillou."
Mommy: "We are not watching Caillou."
Rylyn: "Why?"
Mommy: "I think Caillou is whiny and he doesn't need to learn any new tricks from you."
Rylyn: "Ya, I could teach 'im."
We decided on Curious George.
