It's Official!

Hip hip hooray! We bought the farm today!

Hmmm, doesn't sound quite right does it?

Well anyway, we signed all the paperwork at the title company today so our part is done. The current residents will close on their new home tomorrow morning and will clear out of there by no later than sunday night. Joel is meeting with the contractor on thursday to go over the final plans for the remodel of the house.

So things are in motion! Wow, this is really happening! It really hasn't sunk in yet, this is such a huge change and we have soooo much to do before we can move in. But I am thrilled! It was good to see Joel really smile about the adventure ahead. I think we have both been nervous about something going wrong and haven't let ourselves get too excited about it until today. We have wanted to let the Lord lead us in all of our decisions about the farm and were ready to accept it if we were not supposed to make this move. It has all gone so smoothly though that we are moving forward!

Oh, before I conclude I must give a shout out to our awesome mortgage lender Leon and our realtor George (they are friends from church), you guys ROCK! Thanks for everything!

Signing out,
Jen

I'm so happy for you guys. Make sure you show lots of pictures of the remodeling process!

I was curious if you thought the Method cleaning products at Target were about the same price as the kind you get at Fred Meyer or if they were more or less expensive.

Thanks!

Love,
Becky
