We moved into that house when Matthew started Kindergarten and now he's in 5th grade. So many happy memories and so many celebrations. I will miss our old house.
I took some pictures before a professional photographer came over. They recommended that we remove all signs of life for the pictures. Look how bare our kitchen is.
That little nook with the desk was my little office for over 6 years. It was so convenient to be right in the kitchen.
Our breakfast room which was used for everything - from eating our meals to homework station and everything in between.
So sad to see it empty.
This is our family room.
This is what it look like now...
Our dining room that we used for actual dinner maybe once in over 6 years...
Our living room.
And this was Mark's nursery. Once Mark decided that he was better off sleeping with Mommy and Daddy, we converted it into Matthew's room, but never took Mark's name off the wall or the nursery window covering.
This was Michael's room. He shared it with Matthew when we first moved in. We got them bunk beds and they were happy until Matthew got annoyed with sleeping in the same room with his brother. When we finally moved them into separate rooms and got rid of the bunk beds, we found a stack Matthew's dirty underwear stashed in between the bed and the wall. It was DISgusting! Apparently, that was his hiding place for soiled underpants.
Adjusting to new schools and new routines have been a little difficult,but we are getting there and it will be fine. Change is hard, but it is also a good thing in this case.
