House purchase is official

It's official: we purchased a new home today. We had a walk through with the sellers last night and then our closing was today. We gain possession of the home between 2 and 5pm today and then begins the fun.

We don't plan to move in until Saturday, August 4. For the next two weeks, we'll be doing some quick remodeling, painting, and flooring. We are going to install engineered hardwood flooring in about 500 sq. feet of the main floor. It will be similar to what Adam and Amy put in the basement of Mom and Dad's house.

The house is 82 miles north of Mom and Dad; 38 miles from Brent and Chelsey and Adam and Amy; 593 miles to Mike and Adrianne; 1170 miles to Jason and Michelle; 2318 miles to Lance and Nancy; 2076 miles to Dave and Tana; 63 miles to Kevin and Gillian, and a long way from Hans and Lindsey. I hope most of you fly to visit rather than drive.

Congratulations!! I'm anxious to see the new house. I'd rather fly, too.

So exciting! Like Mom, I'm excited to see your house too.
