Monday we celebrated five years here on The Hill. Our anniversary in our home was marked with an air conditioner that stopped working and a broken well.
Five years. Wow. Nearly all of Logan’s life, and more than half of Cameron’s life have been lived on The Hill. It’s longest we’ve ever been in one place and every other house before this one is barely even a memory at this point.
Nothing is official until it’s Facebook official.
We’ve made some great memories at birthdays and Christmas and every day in-between.
We’ve spent the past five years slowly turning this house into our home.
In those five years we’ve become a part of the community which is something we’ve never really done before. We’re active at our local YMCA and we love the local businesses in our little town. We’ve really worked to make our home more than just the four wall that we live within.
We’ve learned a lot about our town and we’ve learned even more about our house. There are three constants that I’ve learned over the course of those five years here:
1) No matter how hard I try it will never all be clean at the same time. There’s too much house and too many mess makers for me to ever keep up with it all at the same time.
2) Every spring the smell of death will make its way into my bathroom, stick around for a couple weeks then disappear. We don’t know what it is but you could set your watch to it’s arrival each spring.
3) July will bring flies (inside the house). It will start as one rogue fly and by the end of the month become multiple flies buzzing around. I’m living through this one right now and it’s making me crazy. If you have any tips for getting rid of them please let me know.
I’ve also learned that there is nothing I can do about any of those things.

Here’s to many more years of memories here on The Hill.
