Sorry for the long absence from blogging ... we've had some changes occur in our lives.
That's right. We're not getting that house. We had an inspection done on the house, and discovered it needed a completely new roof, repairs on the foundation, new siding, a completely new heating and cooling system, the driveway needed to be fixed and some other "minor" repairs. So after hearing that list we decided the wisest thing to do would be to bow out. God was very gracious to us by not letting us go through with it and then find out all those things.
But there is good news! We got a new house! Here it is:
It's not a great picture because I took it from my car. But that's it! It's a 4 bedroom ranch and it's pretty cute. And get this - it's right next door to the Sylvesters! How amazing is that?! The sovereignty of God is so fascinating to watch. So we're pretty excited. :)
We are closing on the house Friday, December14th and we're planning to move on the 15th. We're actually going to do a joint move with the Sylvesters, so any and all help is much appreciated! Even if you can't lift stuff (or don't want to) we could use help unpacking or watching the babies. Also, if you have boxes that you can lend us or let us have, that would be great!
We're excited to see how God is going to work through us in our new neighborhood!
