We have found a house and we will close on September 22. We are really happy and nervous all at the same time. Everything is working out smoothly. It has been great. We are still negotiating a few things, but hopefully that will all be done by end of next week.
I still haven't started packing, but we HAVE started school for this year. (Yeah, I know. Bad timing, LOL!!) We are moving along though. Anna and I are enjoying it, even though we've only done 3 days. Tomorrow we go on our first field trip of the school year to an old fashioned ice cream shop. We are going to learn about the history of ice cream and then enjoy a treat. How fun is that?! We start our weekly homeschool group next week. Anna is excited about that. She is taking Body Systems and ballet. Yes, ballet again!! LOL! She likes it. I let her because she has fun in there.
Oh and to add to our fun in life, my mom is moving about a week and a half before me. It was supposed to be after, but it will be before. By the 15th, so life is definitely interesting. Just thought I would update. Pictures of the house will be up when we get moved in. Hope everyone has a good weekend.
We have looked and looked and looked at more houses. We have seen so many. Some are great and some not so great. We found 2-3 we really liked. We placed an offer on one, but the counter they sent back left us with nothing we could do but throw in the towel on that house, so we did and placed an offer on another house today. I'm excited about this house. I think it is beautiful. I am very guarded about the whole thing. We are trying not to be too over the top, but it is fun and nerve wrecking all at the same time. I'm hoping we have a counter back on this one tomorrow morning so that we can decide how to counter back tomorrow afternoon, if the need arises. See, what did I say...exciting!! As soon as we find THE house and get the keys, there will be a post showing the pictures.
School has not started yet for us. It look like we will be getting in 3-4 days a week of school to start for now. There will also be one day that we are with a homeschool group, so that will be field trips and P.E. (ballet-this semester) and great learning about body systems. Those are the classes Anna is taking this semester. I am for sure doing this semester, but I will have to re-evaluate next semester and see what happens.
I guess that's all for now. I am finishing off another grueling back to school season and I am plenty ready for us to have a set schedule at home and work. I'm ready for my department to be back to normal. I am also very glad that with this weekend being tax free weekend that I do not have to work. YEAH!!! I'm very glad about that. Take care all.
Well, we are at it again. CHANGE! I like some changes and others I do not. Our new change that is coming is...a new house for us. We are not sure when or where we will get one, but we are pre-approved for a mortgage and we are on the hunt. It may take us a while to find something suitable, or it may be quick, but we will begin viewing houses starting Monday. I am very excited about this. We will be getting enough room to have a school area in the new place. It is something that is a must. I want to have a place to do school that isn't all over my living room and kitchen. It will be great though. We are super excited.
As for school, we are getting ready to start the next school year. We will be doing 3rd grade math and 4th grade everything else. This is what we feel is best for Anna and will help her to be more successful. She is on grade level in everything else, so we do not see the need to hold her back. One of the reasons to homeschool is so she can keep going in the areas she is strong, so that is what we are doing.
Guess that's really about it as far as change. We are very excited about this prospect and as soon as we find that special place, we will let you be aware of it. More moving excitement is sure to follow shortly thereafter. LOL! Thank for all for being excited with us. We will keep you updated.
