We’re moving!! Yeah!! Late last year, Sarah and I decided that it would be good to buy a different house with a little more room to grow. After some looking, we found the house of our dreams in Franklin County. It’s a very large house out in the country with a little over an acre of land. After going back and forth between our realtor, the selling bank (it was a foreclosure), and the bank’s realtor SEVERAL times and a few hiccups along the way, we’ll finally be closing on the house tomorrow (Friday) afternoon. During the waiting period, God also provided an unexpected buyer for our house and we’ll close next week. Praise the Lord!

Next week will be very crazy since we have a lot of work to do on the house. We’ll be painting, taking up the old carpet in the entry level and upstairs, and replacing a toilet and shower. I’ll have my first foray into installing hardwood floors in the entry level hallway and master bedroom. My brother-in-law, Lee, will be putting in some tile in the upstairs bathroom as well. There are some other things that need to be done, mainly in the basement, but we’ll work on those things a little at a time as they aren’t that important. Oh, we’re aiming to have all this done by Wednesday! Then on Thursday is the big moving day!! Talk about a busy week!

Carlos seems pretty excited about going to a new house. He keeps asking if he’ll have new toys at his new house. I’m not sure that he understands that he’ll have everything the same, just a different house. (Same toys, same brother, same Mama & Papa) Jeremiah is pretty oblivious as always. Hopefully the move won’t be too traumatic for him.
