growth.jpgWe knew children were part of the history of our new home in Floyd County: The slide and swing in the back yard, a crawlspace paneled and carpeted as a playroom — and a history of growth on the wall in the garage.

The lines and dates on the wall tell how Amanda grew over the years her family occupied what is now our home. She was seven in 2001 so she would be 10 now and the line at the top marks the last entry before they moved out and on to a new home in another county.

We’re getting ready to paint the walls in the garage but I may leave this section of wall behind the door as it is as a reminder of our home’s past and the future young Amanda will face.
