Somehow, we still managed to find a way to have construction crews in our house!! The basement was unfinished, so we negotiated with the builder to finish it out with a 5th bedroom and bathroom and family room.
We only lived in the house 6 months before we put it up for sale because my husband had decided that he wanted to do something different with his career- like start his own business. The house was for sale for a year and half before it sold. It was a HUGE growing period and a HUGE test of our faith in God. We learned so much during that time in Michigan. I look back on it now, and am thankful for that time in our lives. We learned many valuable lessons and learned to lean more deeply on our faith in the Lord. I loved our time in that house and will always have sweet memories of that house because that is where Jackson spent the first two years of his life growing up. We would love to make it a tradition to visit Traverse City at least once a year. Enjoy some pictures of our time in Traverse city.
The Fishers Run House--Half of our backyard was full of wild blackberry bushes! Every morning we would wake up and see a group of deer or a gaggle(?) of turkey in the backyard. The house backed up to a federal forest preserve!

Look at the long sleeves and pants! It was JUNE! We were visiting an Iris Farm.

My favorite thing about the Fishers Run house: the Hickory wood floors!
