Family

A week to the day we put our house on the market, we have an offer! And its not a bad offer either. It seems nowdays with the markets so bad, offers are super low, because people need to sell. This was only 10,000 below asking price. Today we are countering right in the middle, and hopefully thats it. Our house will be sold! I'm trying not to get too excited. They could still back out, or not accept our counter, who knows. But I had showings every single day since putting it on the market, and that was killing me! My headaches and heart palpitations are back with a vengeance. Hopefully they will go away after we are moved and settled!
I signed the boys up for home school until we are settled in Cali. It seemed dumb to start them here for a week or two, especially since we will be going to Cali to look at houses. But so they don't get behind, and I don't get arrested for my kids not being in school, I signed them up.

My sister and nieces from Oklahoma are still here. I think my mom is purposefully not buying their airfare back, because she doesn't want to let go of them! I don't blame her one bit, and this is a big worry for me when we move. You see, I have two brothers and two sisters. Neither brother is married, just the girls. And when we move, all the girls will be out of state, which means all the grandkids are out of state. My sister in Oklahoma, and me and my other sister in California. That is going to be really hard on my mom. And although we will be back often to visit, it still makes me feel bad. But we need this move more than ever right now. For Jax, and for his health.
With all the grandkids here, we tried to get a new picture for my mom. But with two babies, and two toddlers, it wasn't easy!
This is the best one out of about 50 taken!

Other random pictures from that day.

Oooh, congratulations!! My fingers are crossed that everything goes off without a hitch with your house...

I think that group photo is pretty amazing...I know it's not often someone can get all of their grandkids in the same place at the same time!!

YAHOO on the house, praying that the counter offer is met with a huge and hurried YES so that you guys can all be together again.
Love the pics, that is a great group photo for all the kids in it! I can't get my 3 to sit in the same place long enough to take a picture. LOL
