The house we hope to buy

Paula should have a new journal entry available soon (she started writing it in early January).

Big news…We could be VERY close to buying this house (it has an offer that is about to fall through). Click to see a photo (This is a large photo so you can see it better ~150k). It is located in East Grand Rapids.

Offer nearly accepted

Wow! The deal fell through on the house below and we made an offer that should be accepted tomorrow. Looks like we’ll be moving — Close is set for March 31. Our new community will be East Grand Rapids (the best school district in all of Michigan).
I found this on the website:

The East Grand Rapids School District has the distinction of being the only school district in the state of Michigan to receive full summary accreditation for all of its schools. Accreditation by the state of Michigan is awarded to schools who have demonstrated continuous improvement of their school, the accurate reporting of information about their school and the education of children to the public, and the achievement of specific standards as measured by the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP). Additionally, EGR high school has led the State on the SAT and ACT the past few years.

Only the best for my kids, eh? 😉

Here’s Joshua and Ellie’s future grade school (and, there are only 3 houses in between our new house and this school):

Quite exciting times…Now, if only someone would buy our house quickly.

We spent the weekend in Chicago. We took the kids to see Blue’s Clues Live along with their cousin Mark and his parents. It was a fun time, but went by too quickly.

I am getting close to revamping the website. We’ll see if I can find the time.
