When I was expecting Nora, I had great plans for rearranging kids' bedrooms: turning Mylie's room into Coy's, moving Bennett downstairs, and making a cute room for the two girls to share! Talk about a lot of effort when we just up and sold the house a few months later! At the time, I had no idea it would be like that. I thought we'd be there a few more years. But the time was right. We prayed and searched and really know the Lord was guiding us in the decisions we were and are making. We will get to stay in the same neighborhood and Ward, and our kids will get to continue going to the same school.
So it is bittersweet! I really miss my house in some ways...I loved it! I sobbed and vocally told each room goodbye when I finally shut the door at the end of moving day. We had all four of our children there! In fact we discovered I was pregnant with Bennett just 4 days after we moved in. I felt like our home was us. It was our family. But I am so excited to build a new one! Right now it is just hard because we are crammed in a 2-bedroom, dark apartment until at least Christmastime. We really miss our space, and I do miss my kiddos cute little rooms. I think once our new house starts to take shape, it will not be so hard. So here are some photos of their rooms.
I think I will paint stripes again for Coy's room. They were so cute, even though they were a lot of work! But I only got to enjoy them for a few months.
