It's Officially Unofficial

Sooooo...it seems as though word has spread. The rumors are true...we re buying a house. I say it's officially unofficial because we keep hearing that it's official because we signed all of the contract papers (it ONLY took 3 hours!!! My goodness my head hurt afterward). We still need to "go through escrow" so Dirk and I are not saying it's official until we have signed the final papers. Escrow is supposed to close at the beginning of October. I will post more pics when things are more official and completed. The house was already built before we went to see it but it is an empty shell, there aren't any floors, countertops, toilets, etc. As soon as the inside is done and everything is more official I will post more pics and info.

I also want to thank all of you who have been so supportive. The Lord opened a lot of doors that we didn't think would be open. While we are both VERY excited, there have been several attacks that we weren't expecting. Your support and encouragement, along with our trust in the Lord, has really helped us stay positive and remain excited rather than allowing ourselves to get caught up in the stress that can come with moving and buying a house. It has been such a blessing to run into people who are truly excited for us and are so supportive. You all know who you are and I just want to say thank you!!!

Here are a few pics of the outside of the house, just in case your interested:

Ours is the one on the right
