Letting Go

Change is hard. Yesterday, we officially passed on our beloved home at Winn Farm to a new owner. As much excitement as I have about our "new life" at Applegate, saying Goodbye to our old home was difficult. There are so many memories there...

 
 of little boys in apple trees...


and Grampas no longer with us...

 
 of roses in summer...


and grandchildren on Christmas Eve.


 Of being pulled in sleds...


and riding in Grampy's tractor.

 
Of new life and lost life...
 
 

 
And fairies in the woods.
 

Memories of hot dog days...
 
 
and starry nights.
 
 
Goodbye, grandsons in birch trees...



Goodbye cupboard door that Nancy painted...

 
Goodbye, birthday parties...
 
 
and Goodbye big tree.
 


Goodbye, Halloween in the Wizard's Forest...
 

 
and 4th of July in the pool.

 
 Goodbye to cake in the parlor...
 

and marshmallows around the campfire.


 
Good bye to dancing to Hank's oldies in the living room.


 
Wearing silly costumes in the yard...


And sharing ice cream on first birthdays.

 
Good-bye Trick-or-Treaters and old friends who lived next door.
 
 
Goodbye old house...we'll miss you.
 
 
But we know that someday soon, another family will make memories within your walls, and other children will swing in your maples.
 
 
 All these places have their moments with lovers and friends, I still can recall. Some are dead and some are living; in my life, I’ve loved them all. ~the Beatles
 
Looking forward,
