Kevin’s grandma died over the weekend, and we attended her funeral today. We are so very glad that she is not in pain any more, but we will miss her, and the family will never be the same. She was the silent anchor for all of us on that side of the family, but she had been very sick with cancer and strokes for so long. I am praying that she is at peace with Jesus now. We had to drive about three hours to the funeral. It was good to see family, especially those who live so far away, and those we only get to see at reunions. It was a blessing to have our realtor call on the trip home with the good news about our house.
When we arrived home, the realtor stopped by for us with a copy of the contract from a buyer who visited our house twice over the weekend. We signed the document and went over some figures, making a list of things we needed to get done this week. The offer was not as high as what we were hoping for, but we are praying that the numbers fall in our favor when the final pay-off information comes in from our mortgage company. We are planning to pay off as much debt as possible with our equity, and downsize quite a bit in our next purchase. If all goes as the contract states, we should be closing on the 29th of this month! That leaves me only two weeks to move out!
I guess we’ll be starting “school” in September instead of August this year. I’ll be sure to get my homeschool curriculum gathered up and some school supplies together so we can do a homeschool “lite” schedule while we pack and move. I have, after all, moved enough to label myself a nomad. Doing Math, Reading, Handwriting, Language, and some Geography will be easy to maintain while we are in “transit mode”. I’m sure packing and unpacking could count for physical education as well, eh? The poor kids!
I want to thank you all vehemently for your prayers. God is merciful.
