Happy Day

Toady Dave was over at our new-house-to-be to see the new pool fence going on. That's right people. The house we are getting has a pool! And now it has a fence to keep the kiddies out when we don't want them in. A few weeks ago we signed a contract to do a lease-to-own with the current owners of the house. They are both retiring and moving to Cedar City and they called us one day and asked if we'd be interested in buying their house. They knew we had moved out of the ward under circumstances that weren't very happy and so they wanted to see if we wanted the opportunity to move back. We love their house. It's close to where we used to live, it's right around the corner from Trevor's good friend, and one of Colin's friends from kindergarten lives 3 houses down. The house has 4 bedrooms and a bonus room. I has a big kitchen which I can't wait to start cooking in and a HUGE master bedroom. I love the floor plan and love that the laundry room is it's own room and not connected to the garage. The current owners will be moving out in June as soon as school is out (she is a teacher) and then we will slowly move things over and we'll need to be out of our rental by July first. We are so excited. It will be so nice to have a place that is ours again and to know we will be there for a long, long time. I like feeling settled and grounded. I just wish June would get here just a little bit faster.
