Yesterday we had our Realtor over, and she got us all signed up ...and now our house is officially "on the market". We all thought the meeting went very well. To quote Mom- "I forgot how easy she is to work with!" :) We love our realtor. Something she told us had us all trying not to be very excited... She has some people who like log homes and want to live right around this area that are coming by to look at our house on Saturday! (that's tomorrow!) :) We will be praying very hard while we are out of the house letting them tour it. :)
This evening we are going over to a friend's house to celebrate one of their sons' 16th birthday with a bonfire and a cook-out... It's supposed to be in the chilly low 40's, so we are planning on bundling up! :) I'm sure we will have a lot of fun - we always enjoy getting together with this family.
Our mission for today and tomorrow morning is "Keep the house clean!" :D ...And dust a few areas that need to be freshened up, as they were dusted last week and are now ready for another go-round. :) I think the kitchen and dining room are also due for a good sweeping and mopping. :) Those places tend to get messy faster, because we eat all our meals at home.
Daddy has been reading to us every evening out of the book of John, and we are all enjoying the discussions we have afterwards concerning what was in that evening's passage. Last night we read about Jesus's first miracle when he turned the water into wine at a wedding. I was fascinated to learn that the amount of wine that he made from the water totaled nearly a ton! I somehow hadn't envisioned that it was such a huge miracle. :)
Have a wonderful weekend!
