What a Difference 5 Days Make....

5 days ago... I was not sure when we would receive a crucial piece of paperwork for Abby's journey to American Citizenship. Today ~ all the stress is but a memory. I am "home" with my 5 children who are ALL American Citizens and we now have a home! YES...Joe and I have purchased a house today! This is truly my dream home and very worth the long wait! We should be able to close in the next 14 to 21 days. I am sure to be posting a lot about decorating and settling in!

The kids start school on August 6th... I will sign some paperwork in the morning and then head back to the New Orleans area for a little "vacation" with my family before returning to the daily grind of life in Alabama later this month! YEAH!!!

I'm so glad it's all coming together.
I can't wait to see you guys all settled in. Your dream house is just that, a dream! And what a dream, too!!! Gorgeous!
Good luck with the moving in, which I personally think is WAY more fun than moving out!
I hope the kids are adjusting ok to all the changes.
Welcome home!
