My parents arrived for a visit just a few short days after we moved in. And it was just a few days after they left that Mike’s parents came for a visit! and then Tori came to stay with us during her week off for Spring break, then Larry (Papa) came back to say for 5 more days and then my mom and Aunt Annie Lou showed up! It was a wonderful string of guests in our home. It was during a time when I was still traveling a lot for my new job, not to mention getting the kids on the right routine for their new school and all the unpacking that needed to be done. Just like when we were moving out of our house in Texas, we never would have surived without all the wonderful love and support from our families. The kids loved having their family here with them and I have no doubt that it helped make our new house feel like home.
I honestly wasn’t in the picture taking mood around the house for that first month and a half since there were still boxes everywhere and I wasn’t exactly feeling creative and inspired to take photos. But I did get these shots while Tori and Gramma and Papa were here – all of us out playing wiffle ball in the back yard! We really love our huge back yard and we’ve played in it so much already.
I love this last one – it’s just a shot of Tori helping Piper with her homework one afternoon!
