It's been a crazy-busy week! Tuesday Ben took off of work early so that we could go house-hunting. We were meeting with our Realtor and looking at six houses. Out of the six, only two really made the "cut", and there was one in particular that we really liked! It's in a great, quiet neighborhood and is just down the road from the church! It's also just around the corner and down the street from the Elementary school the girls would go to. An elementary school, incidentally, that is one of the three in our school district that will have all-day kindergarten this fall. Kelsey is very, very ready for all-day kindergarten so this is an added bonus!

So, after going back one more time yesterday to take the girls, we made an offer on the house. We are supposed to hear back by 5:00 today whether it's accepted. So... I'm waiting today and trying not to think about it. But for your enjoyment, here are a few pictures from the listing.

The garage is enclosed and is now a large family room and pantry. Added the carport for covered parking. Considering the amount of hail that comes through here, this is a definite bonus!
Kitchen needs some updating, but has plenty of cabinets space and a breakfast bar.
Vaulted ceiling in the LR, ugly brown shag carpet. But, the carpet is in good condition and can always be replaced...

This is the wall the separates the LR from the kitchen. One of my favorite features!
If we get a final contract on the house I'll post more pictures, but these will have to do for now! Keep your fingers crossed for us!

Hope it works out!!! House hunting is exciting. Carpet never bothers me - I go to garage sales until I find a rug to cover everything! Keep us posted!
