There are still projects to be done around our new place in Washington. Things to finish up in order to make it ours.
For the most part though, all of the big stuff is done. Except for the freaking stairs. Ugh! Don't get me started. But we're pretty happy with the transformation of this old house becoming our new home.
So, when we had an extra day to work on our projects around the house, thanks to Christopher Columbus, you would think that we utilized that time wisely. Right?
Well. We did and didn't.
I know. I know. It is important to have a happy home, complete with stairs, trim painted, and pictures hung on walls. However, no improvement on our home was made.
Right now, on a beautiful sunny day, we decided that the point to our real happiness relied on the memories we make here as a family. And knowing that our days of sunshine in our new home of Washington will soon be very few, we chose to spend it outside at Point No Point, having fun together as a family. Time wisely spent.
That's the point right? When they are older they won't care if our stairs were done, trim was painted, or pictures were hung on the walls.
I think the point of all this is just to enjoy each other while we can, while they still want to hang around with us, while they are still young. The point of all this is to build strong family relationships now so that they always feel safe and loved at home. The point to all of this is to have conversations with our babes while walking the beach hand in hand or building driftwood castles together, just talking about their friends, school, or whatever they want to talk about. The point of all this is just to be together, present in each of their lives. Oh, and of course, the point to all this is that they'll remember all the fun times we have had together as a family, when they are old and gray.
If they don't, ugh, what is the point? :)
