We Got a House!

YAY! So we don't foresee any problems this time. I will show pictures when it is completely signed and closed on. Until then, they have accepted our offer. The house is a little far west from where we wanted originally, but the neighborhood is really nice. The downside is there is no garage, but we can make due. There are 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Fireplace, food storage room, cute fenced in yard. We are super excited to have a house under contract! I can't wait to paint the walls, buy the girls bikes to ride in the bike park down the street, find a swingset for the backyard, etc. I am not dreading moving like you would think. I want to de-clutter my TINY apartment of 4 years and move where there is SPACE! We have all been so tightly compacted for so long I think the girls are going to go quite insane for the first little while with all of the space. Running up and down the stairs, hiding in closets. A blast for them I will say. And I can't wait also to get my hands dirty and put flowers in!! If you can't tell, we are pretty excited about this and it still feels sureal and will feel even more so as the days go by.

Once we close it will feel more like my keys are an attachment to something really COOL!

That's how I felt too. I didn't want to get too attached to our house before it was a done deal. I'm so glad for you! This must be it. And won't it be a perfect time for getting your hands dirty? You're sure going to busy. One of the things I like about being a homeowner is blasting my radio (kind of silly). At the same time one of my favorite things about the village was listening to piano's when people would play hymn's. Now I can play them loudly on the IPOD, but it's not the same thing. Anyways, I'm really excited for your family, I bet you can't pack fast enough.
