Back to the blog, again

It's hard to believe it's been 9 months since I last posted on our blog, but it's true!! Time flies when you've got two kids and you're getting ready to sell your house and move across the country. Because I'm so behind, I'm just going to start with a couple photos from the day we closed on our Wisconsin house -- March 29th. That seems like a good transition because these are the last photos we have from Wisconsin.
John and Lila did a really good job of dealing with all the craziness of putting our house on the market, keeping things tidy for showings, and moving all our stuff out. We'd been talking about the move to Virginia for so long that I think it was no big deal when the time finally came. Here are the kids in the front yard, all ready to go.....
On the front stoop.....notice that Lila has no socks or coat on in this photo, despite the fact that there's snow everywhere. She was having a 2-year-old moment.
In front of the "sold" sign.....we were so, so glad that we got a full offer on the house just one week after we started showings. The house has a fantastic location and was completely move-in ready, so it almost sold itself, really.

Notice the house in the background of this next's the home of Mr. Cliff and Ms. Linda, the greatest neighbors ever! We all miss them a lot and are so glad we got to visit them about a month ago when we were back in Milwaukee for a wedding.
The fully-loaded Mercury's hard to believe how much stuff we can pack into that car.

One last look at our house and street before was our first home as a family of four! Despite all the many hardships we faced during the 21 months we lived there, we absolutely adored this place. We will always feel blessed to have been the stewards of such a grand old (1941) colonial. And who knows.....we may move back to Wauwatosa some day and fall in love with an even older house!
