House for Sale!

Not too much to post, but I took a couple of pictures before church on Sunday of the kiddos. The second picture is of LGT goofing off but all I can say is she gets it honest!

Our suprising news is that we are in the process of buying a house located across the street from Hillcrest Elementary and are selling our current home(1085 sq ft, 3 bd 2 ba if anyone is interested!). We will be signing the house papers on June 15, 2 days before we leave for Disney. The house is 4 bd, 2 bath, formal dining room, and has 2 living rooms(2200 sq ft...so excited about SPACE!). I have always LOVED this house and was talking with the current owner one night at church. Was actually talking about another house we were looking at and didn't realize she was wanting to sell hers! So we went and looked at it that night and put an offer on it the next day. Houses in Ruston that are worth buying rarely are for sale(or sell before we can find out about them!), especially on this part of town, so we decided to jump on the offer! YES, we still have a lot in Creeks Edge, but I'd much rather be in town than "way out there"(Matt says there is nothing too far out in Ruston...whatever!) and this house is one neighborhood over from my parents. So we will probably sell the lot or might decide to build on it in 6-8 years. Who knows!

Well, more details to come about that later. Missed my Monday run due to the kids being up off and on throughout the night. I was WAY too tired to get up that morning. So now I am looking forward to my run in the morning with Sarah. We are going to do the Mudbug 5K in Shreveport in a couple of weeks. That should be fun and I have talked Matt into doing it, too.
Happy Wednesday!
