Done Deal

Today was they day, the day that we officially moved out of our home. I had big plans for today. Most of the plans involved the kids during their last day of school. But some of them were centered towards memory making.

I especially wanted to take a few last shots of Ada in her pink stripe room. Maybe something to frame. Ada felt differently. She decided she really didn’t feel like taking a picture this morning, rather, she decided to pout in the middle of floor. So...no last pink picture. That's OK. I don't need a picture to make a memory. I have plenty.

Last day in our current home


The boys, on the other hand, were more than willing to share a special moment with me. Alex even wanted to kiss every corner of the house...and he did! Now that was the sentiment I was looking for.

Alex kissing every corner!


And Hubby later told me he had a hard time driving away. I sometimes don't give that man credit for affections. But every once in a while...he surprises me. Today was one of those days. Love him.

I, myself, had a harder time today saying goodbye to our wonderful teachers than I did the home we created the last 5 years. And if you know me....you know I am not the Mama who weeps at milestones such as these. Usually.  I welcome the first day of school and question my ability to handle the summers. Most summers. This summer will be different. This summer...we have plans!

But, for the next three weeks, we sit without a home to call ours...yet. We have one home being loved by renters and another home being loved by the previous owners. We also have some of the most wonderful homes I know welcoming our company in the meantime. We are truly blessed.

Having no place to go "home" to has a sense of freedom. No worries. What a way to start the summer!
