Maple Grove... here we come! Well, we bought a house!! Inspection this week and close date will be end of March. The Lord has faithfully provided for us in this. We have seen His hand at work every step of the way. We are buying the house at a price that is right for us (we feel like we got a steal of a deal). We are ending up right down the road from great friends, Billy and Heidi, along with their sweet girls that Addie can't wait to play with all the time!! We are walking distance from Rush Creek Elementary School and even closer now to our families.
We put our town house up for rent last Friday night. Saturday morning we got a call from a family that was interested. Sunday morning they came and looked at the house, fell in love with it, want to pursue renting, and said they'd have the check and application to us by tomorrow. Again, we are feeling completely blessed-- the Lord had a plan for us, we trusted Him, and now it's falling into place.
The kids are doing great. Addie has her moments of frustration or sadness, saying "But I will miss this house when we move," or "What will happen to those blinds? I will miss them!" ... she's very funny. But other times she'll be running around, asking to pack boxes, and talking about what color she wants to paint her new room. Eli just doesn't know what's going on so he's clingy-- but that's ok with me :)
It's an exciting time-- and it's going to come quickly... :)
