Nothing Much... happening here. We are just unpacking and setting up our new house. In addition to that, we are closing out the old home and cleaning it up. As hard as I tried to keep it clean, moving turned it into a great big mess. I still have to shampoo the carpets (probably part of this weekends agenda). There is still no real word on the contract. We did find out that it had passed termite inspection, and an appraisal was done. No information has come forward on the appraisal, and we haven't, as yet, signed the counter offer contract (a verbal acceptance to our counter offer was made). Our realtor seems to think that this is a good thing, because we are able to continue to show the home in case something should happen(which we are praying won't) with the present contract. It is all being done a bit differently than homes we have sold before... I am trusting God in the details and letting Brad handle most of the business side.
Brad is involved in the Little League All Star tournaments taking place in our town this week, and the kids and I stay at home most nights. We may try to go to one of the tournament games(the boys are begging to go), but it is very hard to keep the little ones interested for very long. Our big boys didn't make it to any of the teams playing, but it has inspired them to practice more. Our new yard certainly helps. Everyday they are able to spend outdoors, and everyday I see them working together on their baseball skills. Brad and I took a walk around "our property" this morning . Our kiddos were all outside playing with "Elvis,the puppy", and this momma's heart had to just sing!(Sorry no hubby and I were holding hands (: )
Well better go work on unpacking some more boxes...
I hope you all are having a terrific week!

I love walks with my hubby... and holding hands just makes it *that* much better.
Glad you all are settling in. It takes awhile, but it will feel so much like home soon that you will forget what home felt like in the old house.
Can't wait to see the new place. We told Ash that we would visit you on the way home from vacation and she asked if it was the new house. She is pretty excited! So are we!

Kim, sounds like things are slowly coming together for you and it sounds like you're already beginning to enjoy the new place. Makes me want to start looking for that house with a little land!
