The vast majority of my life has been set against the backdrop of five acres of wooded land that has a creek running through the middle of it. I grew up there. I lived there briefly with my children. My children played in the creek and grass and dirt just like I did as a child. And now....
It's just a double wide trailer but it was home to me since the third grade.

I took these pictures over a week ago and I haven't looked at them at all. I guess I was avoiding it. I'm glad I took them.

One last shot as we drove away.
To the young man that bought my home,
I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. I hope you have a family and your children play in the creek and paint themselves up with war paint, collect leaves, bugs, rocks and memories. I hope you love it as much as we did.
Goodbye old house. Goodbye "Shady Acres".
