Moving On...

After 10 years at our current address, it is time to move on. The commute to school, the need for more space, the desire to be closer to the kids' friends prompted us to "try" putting our house on the market in this slow, buyers' market. Much to our surprise, our little home sold in 30 days.

So, we say goodbye to our first home--the house to which we brought babies Joey, Sammy and Lily home. We say goodbye to the creaky wood stairs down which the kids would creep on Christmas morning to see what Santa had left.

We say goodbye to our front porch on which we would sit, greeting neighbors across the street, waiting for the kids to come out to play.

We say goodbye to our bright kitchen/dining room--if a room could smile, this room had a bright one!The kids have been troopers, helping to prepare for the move:

Goodbye Drake house! We will miss you terribly!

Aaah, what a special home! It's hard to leave those special places behind and move on...they'll always be in your heart though! Love the pictures!
