Fruition

One day, when I was in 6th grade our teacher took us outside for class, just to get some fresh air and change things up. I, of course, being the class clown took this opportunity to once again make myself the center of attention. What I did, I couldn’t tell you, but what my teacher said became etched into my psyche for a lifetime. He said, “Shawna, you have so much potential, I just wonder if you’ll ever use it.” Never having heard the word before, I stopped in my tracks and said, “What’s that mean?” He said, “Look it up.” Imagine my surprise, me the girl who loved nothing more than passing notes in class, and recess, when a teacher said that I could be something! Something that can be, but has not yet come into being…. Yes, I still remember the exact definition without having to look it up. In that moment, with one comment, he changed my perception of myself , he thought I could be more than the goofy girl going nowhere without a care. Thanks Mr. Marx!

 

Whoville house, you have potential! When everyone had written you off, suggested we just tear you down, we knew you could become renewed and bring great times to people in the future. Welcome to the family!

We are beyond happy to share these pictures from beginning to end, and boy are we happy to be done.  These old birds just aren’t spring chickens anymore, but seeing the end result we know in our hearts that good Lord brought us to it, and got us through it!  We wish you all a wonderful Easter.
