We went by the new house yesterday to do a final walk through & make sure everything was as we'd seen it when we'd signed up to purchase it. We spoke with the owner as well as she showed us a few lovely little secrets, all good I promise, about the house. She also gave us a lovely, huge, beautiful lego table her husband made for their kids. Seriously, amazing but as it hadn't sold at their recent yard sale it was going to the tip if we didn't want it, & oh how my lego lover wanted it & barely contained his squeal of joy when I said, "Oh yes, of course I'll take it & I'll pay you for it if you'd like." She did not like, but was happy to give.
It's not the greatest photo, but after we left we zipped back around to double check where the meter box was incase we needed to let the electric company know we were wrong. Power should be switched to us on Friday & we start moving in then too. That leaves me with 2 days to finish packing in, 1 if you count the fact that we collect the keys tomorrow. The boys mentioned sticking wheels on the bunk bed we haven't taken apart yet so they can just "ride" it over to the new house to sleep on Thursday. They are seriously excited after our visit last night.
Needless to say we'll be busy over the next few days as we move & unpack. It's all very exciting for us & we've been blessed in immeasurable ways through this entire process. Each time we think, "Wow, God is just so amazing it can't get any better then this!" He blesses us yet again. We have been seriously humbled, astounded, & amazed by the grace bestowed on us through this very long process.
While we've mentioned very little about it here, or even to friends & family, this has been a process we've been going through since July of this year when we took the first tentative moves to start house shopping. To know we're on the final stretch & will be all moved into our new home by the end of the year is just incredible.
I'll be back to blogging regularly once the new house has internet & I have some lovely photos of our new abode to share. The kids are eager to do a video tour of the place for their Gram. They've been practicing all sorts of funny little quibs with the video camera I dug out & charged. Little do they know it was pulled out & charging for the Christmas due to the gifts she blessed them with. But it's kinda hard not to giggle when they practice infomercial style nonsense with a can of sparkling cranberry juice.
