Its official

It's official, we are HOME OWNERS. We still can't believe how easy it was to just sign our lives away. Ha. We are thrilled.

Silas was disappointed we weren't sleeping there tonight. I don't know when we will actually sleep there. I want to get stuff settled. I'd rather not wake up to a gigantic mess right away. So tonight Jody hung blinds in 2 rooms. He put a few lamps together. I brought our dishes over. Not the plastic ones, but all the others. And of course some necessities like toilet paper and hand soap.

Tomorrow the work begins. Furniture and books and toys...and its supposed to storm all day. I guess the major winds are blowing it in. It was SOOOOOOOOOO windy today. I told Hattie little girls like her could blow away. When we stepped outside, she said, Little girls Hattie blow away.

One more funny. Silas walked into his class today and went up to his teacher and said, Now Kathy, my mom and dad are going to buy our house today, so I'm going home with Shane. He is so proud.

I don't know how much "free time" I'm going to have in the next few days. We'll see. I'll try to post pictures soon too.

Congratulations! I remember the excitement of finally having a place of our own after living in basement suites and seminary student housing and with in-laws for the first 5 years of marriage! It's so great to have your very own space! Enjoy!
