It's been a long time coming!
As some of you readers may remember, way back in the mists of time (last November), our family moved to Missouri from Texas to be near family while Tim pursued his Master's. In February, Alfie joined us, and everything just felt "right," having him around again! We've been enjoying staying with my Mom while working through the whole process of selling the Texas house and hunting for a new place here.
We love Mom's place -- it's a wonderful home in a fantastic, friendly neighborhood. Besides that, it's near miles and miles of walking trails, and is less than five minutes' drive from my brother and his family. And as if that weren't enough, we've got an aunt and uncle and other friends nearby, too!
So when a deal on a house in another part of town fell through and an opportunity opened up to buy a home a couple doors down from Mom...we couldn't pass it up! Maybe it was just meant to be.
The girls are excited because they'll each have their own bedrooms now -- unlike our last home, where they had to share a room. Alfie will love playing in the nice fenced yard. It needs fixing up, but we're even excited about that! With closing scheduled in just a couple of weeks, we're all thrilled.
I can still come visit Grandma, right?
