Well time has passed and I still have not given an update on what's going on down here so here's answers to common questions...
Yes, we closed in our home! Thank you Lord! We were able to close Tuesday after the expected closing day. We were able to postpone our appointment with the movers so Brad had enough time to fly back to Chicago and meet them.
They picked up our things on Thursday of that week (2 weeks ago) and that same day in the afternoon Brad traveled back (driving our van this time) to Houston. His trip went very well considering he was by himself this time.
He rested for one night in Memphis and then was back on the road Friday morning and arrived here in the evening. (A side note from Brad...if you are ever in Memphis...DO NOT stay on West Memphis area!...choose East Memphis....better looking and SAFE...hehe.)
Since then, we've been busy getting appliances, cleaning our home, learning how to drive around, etc. Brad even got to try mowing the lawn for the first time. He did well considering it was 100 degrees outside!
We are still waiting for the movers to arrive with our things. They were basically ignoring our calls for about a week but they finally gave us a deadline of this Wednesday for their delivery so we hope and pray that they show up!
Otherwise...I will be getting to know all the thrift stores in the area very well....haha.
Some have asked to see our home so here's some pictures of God's provision to our family.
Still more answers to come like how are we coping with the weather? what's up with the hurricanes? how are the boys adjusting? when do we get to live in our new home? how does Brad likes his job? Are we still homeschooling? what do we think of Houston now that we are here? how's the church hunt going?
If the storm doesn't cut our internet access I will try to answer these this afternoon.
