We're Moving!

We sold our townhome in Ankeny on Friday and bought a home in Des Moines on Sunday! The plan is to move on May 21. It is a cute little ranch with three bedrooms (plus a non-conforming 4th in the basement) and cute yard and a nice finished basement. We are excited to have more space to better serve our family as well as to be able to use our home to serve others! The location will be so great. Adam's work and our church will only be about 10 minutes away! Many other stay at home mommies live nearby so that will be wonderful.
A few downsides to moving....living in a new townhome we have been spoiled with a home that needs no maintenance as well as all of our lawncare/snow removal is taken care of. So, we will be moving from a home built in 2003 to a home built in 1956. We also currently live in a very quiet and beautiful neighborhod that has many trails and parks very close by. We have some dear friends and family that also live close that will be hard to be further away from. But, in the long run we believe this is the best decision for our family and the place that God wants us to be most useful for Him.

Please pray that everything with closings of both homes goes well so that we can be eligible for the $6500 Tax Credit which will be so helpful!

We feel so blessed and are amazed at God's answer to prayers!  He really came through in ways we couldn't have imagined.  His timing is so perfect!

  6. Sorry, My last post got posted before I was finished and then I couldn't post again.

    Anyways, LOVE the new house. It's so beautiful! I love the rec room and the playhouse will be soooo fun for Haven. I always wanted a playhouse when I was a kid. She'll be the coolest kid on the block!
