I realized it's been a while since I updated the blog about our move. I tend to do brief updates on Facebook frequently and have neglected the blog lately.
I posted over a month ago that we had a house. We then proceeded to cancel that contract after the inspection and we've been searching ever since. Mark saw a few houses each week after work. I went back 2 weeks ago for 2 days and we didn't find anything compelling. Our realtor sent an email to her fellow agents asking for pending listings. There is a house that the sellers were planning on listing in the spring and they agreed to show the house to Mark. Lo and behold, he likes the house and decided that we should make an offer on it. We now have a contract on another house.
Meanwhile, the rest of us are still here in NE Wisconsin. Mark flies back and forth every weekend and stays in a hotel during the week. We've decided to move into a furnished apartment in October for about 6 weeks before closing on our new house. It will be great to start getting involved in life there (church, Bible study, preschool for Nathan, etc.). But we're missing the Down Syndrome Walk for Awareness in St. Paul this weekend.
Tomorrow is Micah's IFSP meeting with his therapists. I haven't had enough time to dread this one so maybe it won't be so bad. Really, it's helpful to see progress toward goals. But the evaluations are really hard (i.e. he's functioning at 8mos in gross motor skills, 10mos cognitively, etc.).
This past weekend was super busy with lots of family activities surrounding Mark's parents' 50th wedding anniversary. Pictures to follow soon.
