We’ve finally finished our move, and have almost settled in at my mother’s place (which is where we’ll be staying while our house
is being built).
It was kind of sad to leave our little house (it was just under 800 square feet at the best of times, though it seemed much smaller in the dead of a dismal Vancouver winter). We put a lot of love and hard work into it over the course of 2 1/2 years, never expecting that we would be leaving it so soon.
We were fortunate to be able to take all 7 of our fruit trees with us, and they’re waiting in the shade beside my mom’s house for their big move to the property
. We’re in the middle of a heatwave at the moment though, so we might wait until things cool off a bit (assuming they will).
were none too pleased about being uprooted, and Shadow ended up jumping to freedom from an open window 10 feet off the ground. We were worried that she’d get lost and we’d never see her again, but at 4:00 this morning she showed up, meowing furiously outside the window to be let back in.
J. at his 5th birthday party (astronaut theme).
Today also happens to be our son’s 8th birthday. We’re heading out shortly for a few rounds of glow in the dark bowling to celebrate.
I just had to share this lovely invitation that we saw while dropping off the last of the garbage on the final day of our move. I suggested it as a backup to bowling for my son’s birthday, but for some reason he didn’t go for it.
