The big reveal! The long awaited surprise! A new year....a new........


The big announcement I promised is that we have signed a contract to build a house!

We have our lot picked out - we have chosen tile, flooring, etc. and we had our pre-construction meeting with the builder last Friday!


After almost 4 years of renting, finally we have made a decision, chosen an area and will be buying a house. We are sooooo excited. We are very thankful that things are working out as they are. We will have more room, more bathrooms (yay!) and a dedicated room for schooling again - hooray!

Here's our dirt...isn't it lovely??????

We think so! Stay tuned for updates during the building process - we're told the house should be ready the end of April or so. We hope so since our lease is up the end of May on our current residence! The timing is just right, the house feels right for us - we praise and thank God for his provision for our family and we can't wait to invite friends and family over after we move in!!!

A dedicated room for schooling???? I'm so envious! Congrats on the new house!

What great news! We are so thankful you finally found the house and land that you wanted!

Yes, Jessica - hooray! Right now alllll of the school stuff parades down the front hall and is the first thing you see when you enter the house. Blah! As you probably know by now, a lot of stuff piles up fast and never seems to stay all neat and tidy! I can't wait to have a door to close on the mess when need be! :)

Anne - we finally decided it was time to decide. The land we really want just won't be found (for under a few million) near the city/work, therefore we decided to just buy in a neighborhood and continue our search for land. I'm excited about the house - it has a lot of good things about it, and probably the only negative is a smallish laundry room - I could use allll the room in there I can get, but that's ok - we'll make it work! Hope y'all will come up and visit for a meeting or something after we get moved in! The house won't be ready 'til May-ish...can't wait!
