Our New House

We are in contract on a house, finally, and will close June 11th. It is a HUD foreclosure and we got it for a GREAT price!! We hope to do a lot of work from June 12th through the end of June and move in slowly starting in July. I do not want to be living among a lot of boxes, so we will unpack a lot before we move in. We are not going to have too much cash left after our 20% down-payment, so we will be doing the "necessary" things (bedroom doors, painting, etc) and doing other things as we live there. We appreciate all the prayers that have gotten us to this point. God is Faithful!!

Quick update





It has been wayyyyyyy toooooooo long, but I will try to update you quickly.

Bobby- loves his new job(s). Sometimes I get tired of the stories, but I am very thankful that he is enjoying what he is doing.

Bekah- is excelling at kindergarten. She is reading, it is amazing!! She has also started soccer and is having a blast. Her first game was last week and by the end, she was really stepping up and doing great!

Sarah- is loving her tumbling class and has made a new friend from the class. We have been over to their house a couple times to play and we even had a playdate at a park. She is also finally potty training. During the day and at night. We are so proud of her and thankful to not have to buy pull-ups anymore.

Leah- is growing like a weed. She is crawling every where, pulling herself up on everything, and starting to climb steps. She will be 1 in just a few short weeks. She still only has 2 teeth, but is starting to get the top ones, hopefully. She only eats table food, so sometimes it is hard to get it small enough for her to gum.

I, Paula, am doing well. Even though the life of a SAHM is sometimes monotonous, I am enjoying being able to spend time with the kiddos and my nephews. I am playing the piano for the wedding of my good friend, Sally, in a few short weeks, so I am excited to use my piano skills that have been dormant for a while.

We are in the process of buying our first home. We have bid on a short sale and are waiting for the bank to approve the bid, but we have also bid on another home that is larger and better for our family. They have closed the bids and we will find out tomorrow night whether they have accepted our offer or not.

Stay tuned for further information. :~)

The big day


Bobby started his new job this morning. He had to be there at 8, and my sister (who works at the same company) suggested he leave at 7:15 am until he got the traffic pattern down. He left at 7:05 (wanted to leave at 7) and got there at 7:38 am. I convinced him that he doesn't have to leave until 7:15 tomorrow.

I started taking Bekah to school, allong with the girls. We survived!

This shift, 8-5, is only during training, and there is the possibility of him be switched to 9-6 or 10-7. I am secretly hoping for 9-6, even though it would mean he would miss dinner with the girls. It just would be very helpful if he could still take Bekah to school.

Have to go get ready for the rest of the day!! Have a great one!

Jobs, jobs, jobs

Bobby starts his full-time job on Feb. 1.

Bobby starts his part-time youth ministry internship Feb. 7.

This Sunday will be our last Sunday at our current church. Pray for the girls. I'm a bit worried about their transition. This is the first church Bekah really has friends that she talks about, and it took Sarah along time to get used to church, but now loves her classes. Leah has never been in the nursery, so I'm not that worried about her, but more about me dealing with them essentially by myself since Bobby will be occupied.

We are starting to take steps to get pre-approved for a loan to buy a house, but there is not much out there that we think we will be able to afford. I am anxious to get back in our own space.

Thank you for your prayers!!

Waiting

Currently waiting to hear about an interview Bobby had last week. We would appreciate your prayers. This job would solidify us being able to get our own place again. We're not sure if we'd be able to buy a house right away, but we'd at least be able to get back on our own.

More to come soon.

Maybe....
