Thursday, August 4th - we receive an offer on our house
Friday, August 5th- Marathon search for houses all afternoon. While driving around we commit to be under contract to sell our house.
Saturday, August 6th - offer on our new house and we wait. House is in different school system.
Monday, August 8th - we go to Meet the Teacher at Hall-Kent. Philip texts me while we are there asking me to come home to sign contract paperwork on our future house. We politely excuse ourselves from the class meeting and head home.
Tuesday, August 9th- We frantically work on paperwork to switch Little Philip from Homewood to Vestavia schools since school starts Wednesday at Homewood and Friday for Vestavia.
Wednesday - Thursday, August 10-11th - Renie hosts her Campus Life staff training and rounds things out with a cookout at our house Thursday night. Enjoyable and fun.
Thursday, August 11th - 9:40 a.m. we complete paperwork and start the 10:00 a.m. Meet the Teacher at Vestavia, finding out that Little Philip is in Mrs. Ratliff's class. We are thrilled. We also see his sweet friend, Erin, is in his class. Erin and Philip are good friends from preschool. Things are looking up.
Friday, August 12th - Little Philip starts school.
Mamie and Bop Moss spent a good portion of the weekend with us while Bop was here for a veterinary conference. The kids have been nothing short of amazing through this past week, barely having any attention from us as we have been on the phone with potential lenders and signing mountains of paperwork. Little Philip especially has been an incredibly cooperative little boy considering the transition he has been through. Having Mamie and Bop love on them was just what they needed, and lunch with Nee Nee and Poppy after church tomorrow will be icing on the cake. We are pooped but very happy with how things are turning out. More on our September 7th big move soon!
