The village has been redoing our alley. The entrance to our garage (along with many of the others’ down the alley) was damaged in the process, and today a crew came to finish the repairs with fresh cement. Brandon noticed the work being done, and was excited about heading out with the kids to put their hand prints in it. They were so into it!
We plan to be in this house for a long time. How cute would it be to see their little hand prints on our property as they grow older? We went out as a family. The kids pressed their hands in, I scratched ’2013′ in, and we used a cute stamp for their initials. Then the cement worker, who was down the alley a few houses, came by to smooth it all over again when we went inside to wash the kids’ hands.
