Would they approve?

A few years ago we had a decision to make. My father-in-law had passed away so we were trying to decide what we were going to do with the farm. Rent it, sell it or move there? We already had a home we had lived in for 20+ years, raised both of our girls.....& had lots of memories there......., but if we were going to sell or rent the farm, we would have to update the house. At first we hadn't even considered moving, but the more we thought about it.......if we were going to put money into the house, then why not make it what we would want. Besides, our youngest daughter was a senior, we didn't need to stay in that school district any longer. So we decided to totally remodel the house, build a pond and build a new pole barn. We were moving!
After lots of decisions, lots of choices, lots of de-construction, which was really fun and LOTS of painting, which wasn't so much fun, we moved!
There are times when I am sitting on the patio in the morning or down by the pond enjoying the scenery I wonder what my in-laws would think of what we did to their farm................I think they would enjoy it if they could spend a day here. And yes, they might even approve..................
