Making our mark.

Today the slab was laid for the basement step-out. We created a simple design with leaves. Ferns and maple leaves from behind the house and a couple oak leaves from our favorite giant oak tree. We gently pressed them into the wet concrete.

The kids each pressed a hand in and we wrote their names underneath the handprint.

Sage of course, threw a fit and we had to hold her down to get her hand printed. Of course, once we were done we had to hold her back from putting both hands in again.

We are leaving our mark in the concrete and personalizing the construction. After all, this is more than just a house, it is our home.
