Tell Me Thursday - Shovels & Dirt



While I can see why some would think this was a beach shot -- it is not. This is a picture of Colin sitting in the middle of the plot which became our home. 8 years ago this week we signed the papers to move into the home we had built.

You can see the outline of our house better in this picture:



In fact, you can visit this site and take a look at a bunch of pictures from when we had the house built!  (I can't believe that site is still sitting there -- but I'm glad it is so I could pull these photos!) I think we signed the papers to start building around Memorial Day, and we moved in the first week of October 2001.  Bo wanted Colin to take his first steps in a house we owned -- and he waited until that week to take his first steps!

I've never lived in the same house for 8 years before in my life!  We talked a couple years ago about selling and moving, but looking at these old pictures make me glad we didn't.  Bo put a lot of work into building this home for his family, and I like the fact that all of our kids are growing up here.

Did you play Wordless Wednesday?  If so, tell your story today through Tell Me Thursday!

  5. What a great story and memory. My parents still have the house they built 29 years ago so I totally get the living in a house forever. My dad's parents are/were the same way. Still there 50 something years later.
