Chronicling the life of Clayton and Spenser, with memories of Scooter

October 23, 2008


Ten years ago today, Phillip, Clayton, Spenser and I moved to New Jersey and into this house (Scooter arrived the next year). Like today it was a brisk fall day and the leaves were in their glory. I have to admit that I spent part of that first day crying over what an ugly house we had bought. It was completely brown, inside and out, with carpeting in the kitchen. We tore down walls, painted the ones remaining, sided the house, ripped out the shag carpets, etc. We became part of the community. Phillip now sits on the Zoning Board, Ethics Board, and the Health Advisory Board. I haven't lived for ten years anywhere since leaving my childhood home to go to college. Yup. It's definitely home.
