We just arrived back from 4 days of camping. (pictures here) It was suppose to be 5 but we were cut short one day at the start to go look at a house that had just come on the market. And being that we knew we were going to be homeless in 3 weeks from last Tuesday we thought we ought to look. We got a sitter and made the trip by ferry to look at this house in Seabeck. It has 5 (FIVE!) acres with a 4 bedroom home (2.5 baths). We were astounded at the price lower than we thought we’d ever get. We were even more surprised to get their and both completely fall in love with EVERYTHING! It has just about everything we were looking for and more. All I can say is GLORY TO GOD!!!!

We made an offer Monday night and while camping and via fax received and signed their counter offer. We had our inspection today and it turned out VERY well. And to top it all off there are eager to leave and have no problem with an incredibly short close. It is ours on August 31st. Everything is moving sooooo quickly but yet so smoothly all I can do is give all Glory to God!!! Two weeks ago we were so stressed and nervous about having no place while this one sold so quickly. But we prayed and God heard. (PICTURES OF HOUSE)

Thank you all for your prayers!!!!!

Our camping trip was great! We had nearly perfect weather, just one night of rain, and the sand and sun were so fun! Picture link above.

Glory to God, indeed. I am so very happy for you at the smooth way this has all gone. Things just don't fall together like this without Divine intervention.

That is AWESOME Sue!!! I was just wondering if you'd found a place. Just from the outside, it looks like the perfect place for you and your family. Take pictures of the inside when you can - and I want to come see it in person ;) I'm probably moving across the country sometime after Christmas, so be ready for some pestering :)

RW---I posted some picks, there is a linkk in the original post now...in caps. And thank you for the wonderful quote by Hopko. It was really encouraging and helped bring me back to focus on the true goal.

Is there an announcement, Miss Arielle?

Congratulations! I have a great affection for the date of August 31, and I think it is a perfect day to buy a house (and say, celebrate a birthday or something ;) )
