Before and After Pictures

It's been forever!  A lot has been going on at the Green house lately.  I haven't been blogging for a long time for many reasons.  Mostly, we have been going through some really tough things with Jacob, and I wasn't ready to talk about it yet.  The past year was a rough one.  Life is good though , and I have seen so many blessings through all the trails that occur,  but it has been tricky to step away from it all and think of other things.  I am ready to talk about it now.  I am hoping our story might help someone else who is going through the same thing.  We got a diagnosis for him, and although it's an answer after all these years of looking, it's also opened the door wide open for millions of new questions and hurdles to overcome.  More on that later.  

We moved to Virginia 4.5 years ago, and have most recently decided to commit to a few more years here in Northern Virginia.  In the last 4 years we have painted every surface of this house.  We replaced all the flooring, appliances, bathroom vanities, lights, hardware, and many more things to turn this house into OUR house.  But with how things usually go,  Chad and I felt the need to move elsewhere and close this chapter in order to start a new one.   With Jacobs struggles and 4 growing kids, we were feeling we needed a change in some areas of  life, and that led us to look for a new home that we could make OURS.  I found these pictures from the sales flyer when we bought the house.  It was fun to see the changes.
