I've hesitated to say a single word about it, here on the blog or even to our friends. This is the 3rd contract our house has been under (yep, we had contract #2 and it also failed) and I think this is the one that will stick. We're heading to Athens today to clear out the garage and get the place ready for closing, which should be towards the end of October.
I'm so excited for us! This literally changes the whole picture for our little family. The amount of relief this brings to us financially and emotionally is staggering!
We've got our eye on a very cute little place that is for sale by owner and happens to be less than 2 miles from Ethan's school. We're going to be looking at it again soon and talking to the owner about price, home inspection, and all that other good stuff that goes along with this miserable business.
Ethan continues to grow and change in ways that are hard to articulate but that are constantly amazing us. Everything seems to be improving and changing for him all at once. His balance and coordination, his speech, his sign language, and his behavior are all on a major upswing.
I leave you with Ethan's first photograph which he took with my phone last weekend.
