We've Moved!

Well, we are finally in Fayetteville, West Virginia, since I started working this past week. School starts for students on August 26th, which is this Wednesday. I have a crazy teaching schedule, as I will be teaching four preps. How I get myself in these messes is beyong me. However, I really seem to like the people that I am going to be working with. It will be tough to teach so many subjects at once, but once I have done it, then I will be able to teach anything in the county! Bring it on...well, I say that now, but in a week a might be crying.

Hopefully this house (pictured above) will be our new home!



As for the updates on a house, we put a contract on a house and now we are in the process of waiting. We ordered an apprasial and hopefully it will be done this upcoming week. Once that is out of the way, we will now for sure if the house is going to be ours. It is really exciting, and sometimes we drive by the house just because we want to see it. So I really hope it works out, because our little hearts are set on buying it. Until then, our friend has been generous to let us stay at his place. He actually owns two little small houses in Fayettevill, which sit side by side. He has fixed up one of them, which he now lives in. The other, which was orginially rented, turned into a storage unit, as he found that he needed more space. Since it was basically available, we are using the space for a simple rental price. It works for us, because there is a kitchen, bathroom, and a small room to sleep in as he has things stored in the rest of the house. It might not be much, but about 10 days ago, I thought we might be camping!

We are staying here for about a month!

Oh my gosh, that house is so adorable, picket fence and all! I really, REALLY like it. It just has a good feeling about it, great photo. I wish I could have a home to really call my own ... one day (sigh). :)

Good luck in buying that cute house. I'm so glad that things are working out for you. Perhaps we'll be able to come visit in the next year or so. We've got to get some money in the bank first but it sounds like a great place to be.

Megan- We love the picket fence too...in fact, the owner has just finished replacing it and it just pops. I can't wait until we pressure wash the house and make it look sharp too!

Oh Karen, I forgot to write. I would love if you all came for a visit. It has the perfect rivers that you would all love. I've never been on them yet. We are also looking at making a trip to Yosemite together maybe in two years. I think it would be great to see some mission friends while I am out there!

This is Peter. When is the whitewater festival? And can we crash on the floor of your beautiful soon-to-be house?
