New House Update- a Roof!

The house is coming along & changing so quickly. It's really started to sink in this will be OUR home. I drove by our old house the other day after taking Keira to preschool. It already didn't seem like our old place, like we were never there. SO strange!!! But I've realized it's the family you are with that makes your house a "home" so no matter where we are, as long as I have my husband and girls, and the dog of course, all is well! We are getting so excited to move in!

We still have a few hurdles to overcome though and need all the prayers we can get. My husband was laid off from his job at the end of April. But thank the Lord he had begun looking a few weeks prior, and he got a new job the same day!! He was laid off via conference call around 3:30pm, then got a phone call from the recruiter he was hired for the new job at 5:30! Crazy how that works out. I know God definitely had a hand in this-my mom volunteers at her church pulling job listings from the web and and putting them together for people out of work. While volunteering one day she came upon this job listing and thought it would be perfect for Kevin since it was in his field of sales. She passed along the information to us and Kevin submitted his resume. A few weeks and 2 interviews later, he was hired! It couldn't not have come at a better time. Obviously it's not the best time to start a new job when applying for a home loan. We wouldn't have had a chance at all had he not already had a job hunt going. Now we are just hoping & praying & waiting to see if everything works out. A new job is not what the loan officers want to see!! He starts the new job this Monday. I know he is anxious to get going!

Ok enough about that, here are a few photos taken last week:

Then Kevin went by a few days ago and the cedar was put in on the front of the house and the brick delivered!

Yea!!! My friend and soon-to-be neighbor a few doors down told me they started bricking the other day. Can't wait to go see it this weekend!
