SOLD!

I am proud to say that Matt and I are owners of an empty lot! Construction on the house will begin in the next few weeks. Matt went to look at the house yesterday and loved it as much as I did. he wanted to put down the earnest money right away but I talked him into waiting a day so we could talk about everything. We got up this morning and were even more sure about it than when we went to bed last night, so we drove out to the office and signed our contract! We are on a lot that backs up to a baseball field and is across the street from the park. There are already 7 officers in the neighborhood. On or way out this morning we met one of the sheriffs and amazingly ran into a lady who's son goes to Southwest Christian Academy. Billie used to tutor him. We are very excited about this next step in our lives. It was pretty nerve wrecking to write the biggest check of my life today, I can't imagine what closing day will be like. Here are a few pictures of our lot... I will be out there often to check on the progress and will post more pictures as we go. This is the baseball field out back...
We picked out the brick and trim colors today. We will go to he design center and pick out the interior things in about 2 or 3 weeks.Thank you for your prayers and words of encouragement both on the home buying and Matt's work. Love to all!
