Don't get me wrong, I can't wait to finally live in our new home. But gosh, I didn't think I would be so emotional about leaving our current home. And to think we are only moving a few miles away, what will I be like when the military moves us (again)? I guess it's because this home brought many firsts, Brady's firsts really and I'm just sad to walk away from where some of the happiest moments of my life took place. Yes it's just walls and windows and a roof but under that roof (and in that yard) we've had moments like these:

Think about all the 'firsts' you'll have with Lucy in this new house and all the new amazing memories you'll make with Brady there...

Isn't it amazing how a house can become a home in such a short amount of time. I think the Air Force forces that transition so mcuh quicker too. You will always have the memories of the old house and will be able to create many more wonderful memories in the new house.
