Whew! We're Back!

We have finally made it back home (for the 2nd time) since heading down to SC to find us a house and, boy have I missed everyone. It will take me forever to catch up.

So much has happened in the last week that I don't know where to begin but I think I will start with the BIG news.......we have a house!!! YAY! YIPPEE!!

We are under contract with a house (which I will show you later). It is a wonderful four bedroom + bonus, 2 1/2 bath home on a large lot in a family friendly neighborhood and I can't wait to get down there.

We did get the kids signed up for school and football and can you believe that B has already had one football practice?? I know. We're just glad we happened to be down there and could make it. I'll have to take him back next week more practices and get back home because the movers are coming to pack & load our house on the 14th & 15th. I know!

It took all summer to make happen but it looks like it pays to be pushy (and have God on your side). I said I wanted the kids to start school on time and by golly it seems like He's going to make that happen.

That's about all of the big news (for now). I'll do a house post some other time - I need to download all of the pictures first.

Hope everyone has been well & I'll stop by to visit as I can.

Damn, Girl - you know how to get things done! Reading this made me tear up a bit. I'm so bummed you're actually moving. *sigh*

We start football this week too - The Boy is beside himself with excitement!

Great going. Pleased to hear everything is falling into place with the move and the house hunting.

Can't wait to see pictures of the house.

Tell B to keep up the ball practice.

Good for you! Doing the happy dance. I'm glad it's all coming together, even if it's really crazy now.

looks like fun.

Congrats on the house!!

We closed on our new one last week, spent the last 4 days painting & getting carpet instaled, today is my packing day to prepare for the move this weekend!!

I hope it all goes smoothly for you!

Glad to have you back in Blogville!
We missed you.
Wow...football already?
You are a good mama to take him all that way to practice.
I will stop complaining about my 5 minute drives.
