Well, I didn’t think this day would really get here. We worked so hard all of February and March to get the house ready to be on the market. We didn’t realize making that decision would lead to the ordeal it has….but everything in God’s timing. Now, if it is His will, the house will sell, we’ll get a fair price for it, and we can move into a bit of a larger home! We are so excited! In my pessimistic flair, I had resigned myself to believing we’d live here our whole life.

I can’t say that I’m not emotionally tied to the house – we have done so much work to it and it really is a very nice little home. Two of my babies were born in that little bedroom. We have made many memories in our backyard and across the street at the park. It will be bittersweet to leave. If it were only about 1000 sf larger….. ha!

I have never been one to believe that young, married, growing families should take on a huge home mortgage. It was a smart decision to move into a small home first. I would love the opportunity to build my dream home (a modified version of my Grandpa’s homestead.) Actually I’d love to buy some acreage and build the home there, debt free – I think it’d be a grand adventure to live in a mobile home and pay for the land and mobile home almost 100% and then build the house ourselves as we have the cash so that we own it outright when all is said and done. I’m not sure that Royce or I are actually disciplined enough to ever actually accomplish that dream though – so for now – I’ll be content where ever God plants us!
