Laying the Foundation for the Future

“You can’t build a great building on a weak foundation. You must have a solid foundation if you’re going to have a strong superstructure”.

Gordon B. Hinckley

On Friday the Thirteenth, the foundation was laid for our new house. Every day we are one step closer to having our strong superstructure. We are one day closer to moving out of our little rental and beginning a new journey in this house.

It’s hard to believe so much progress was made in one week. On Monday I didn’t think this would ever happen. Monday afternoon changed all that. What a difference a day makes! I’m not 100% sure what happens next; if this has to be inspected before the plumbing goes in or if we’ll see some pipes today. What I do know is that the next couple of weeks are going to be very exciting.
