4 years

It was 4 years ago this past weekend that we moved from our quaint, humble neighborhood nestled in the Provo foothills to our home here in Little Cottonwood. Really, four years doesn't seem like that much time in the grand scheme of things, but when you have children, it can be a lifetime. I think the pictures say it all . . .

Our final picture at 2950 N. 650 E. - the home where each child was brought home as a newborn.

The first weekend at our new home, on the front porch - July 2005

Fast forward four years to the same front porch - July 2009.

It's been a wonderful journey watching my children grow up, but at the same time looking at these pictures and realizing that in another four years, July 2013, I'll have a child preparing for college, a 16-year old daughter beginning to date and drive, another daughter turning 12 and beginning the YW program, and realizing that my baby will begin 4th grade.

I think I'm going to cry.

Love the photos. I wish I had something like that from our move to NSL from Charlotte. Your kids are beautiful Julie!

Wow - they are quite the cute little foursome - sitting on the porch. I remember the lovely old Provo house. Happy days!!

The photos are precious! Time does fly when we are having fun! My oldest will be turning 13 in Oct. and my youngest just turned 9 last week. Hard to believe since it seems like yesterday that we brought them home as babies. But what a journey & a blessing!
