Going Home!

My girls were bored yesterday when we were back at my boyhood home for family Christmas. They are of the age now when they can drive around town and so they went on a picture chase.

I just love this picture! Mattie is standing in front of my boyhood home (609 7th Street). Mom sold the house in 2003 but we can't help drive by it each time we're home and tell the story of how 7 of us piled into and lived in this 1300 sq foot home. I'm still amazed that we did that.

The home has been refurbished and sold twice since Mom let go of it, but it will never measure up in the memory area to the occupants who lived here for 36 years!
