Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires...courage.

Our New Home

Well, we are so fickle aren't we?! Our realtor called us Friday to say he had listed another home that he really thought we would like. I have to say I wasn't all that excited, because we've just had so many issues with finding a house here. However, when I looked at the photos on the site it looked very nice, so I told Karl we should go take a look. I did not expect it to fit our needs, simply because none of the others have.

We went to see the house yesterday, and it is absolutely beautiful! So we made an offer, and it was accepted by 6 p.m. Yeah! The closing is scheduled for October 29, 2008. It has a nice back yard, kind of hilly, so we think the kids will be able to sled. There's a finished walkout basement, it has 4 bedrooms, and they're big enough. The kids rooms could stand to be a bit bigger, but they'll work fine. Logan and Corbin will share a room, and Hailey will still have a room to herself. The baby will be in a room near us. The good thing is that the basement has lots of cabinets and plenty of room for toys and school books, so the kids bedrooms shouldn't have to be too crowded. Plus, that means all the Legos, marbles, and tiny things a baby could choke on will stay downstairs...at least that's the goal! The kitchen is very large, so that's a definite bonus. We're very excited to have found this place; I think it will suit us perfectly.

Congrats on the new home! It will be nice to be all settled in before the new baby comes. And hopefully your energy will be back up by then to unpack! Wish I was closer so I could come help. But maybe one day I can visit on one of our trips to NY to see family.
