“Mommy, you have fourteen numbers on your tickety-tock!”

of course, that was Kenan


This is a great little talk on the arts in education.

And yes, all conditions removed from the purchase too.  We’ve got somewhere to move into!

Moving Month is June.  You’re all welcome.  Bring work gloves.


All conditions have been removed on the sale of our house. 

So we’re definitely moving out! 

Tune in next week for the answer to:  will we definitely have a new house to move in? 



Our offer has been accepted!  It’s still conditional on a few things, so we’re trying not to get too excited yet, but we’re celebrating a little.
We actually waited a bit too long on it, someone else made an offer today too, so we had to go straight to our best offer, no trying to get them down.  But our realtor called just a few minutes ago to say our offer was accepted. The other offer was a bit higher than ours but it was 100% financed (no down payment) whereas we’re putting over 50% down, and our deposit was a bit higher.
We’ll do an inspection next week and talk to our bankers, and by the end of the week should be able to remove all our conditions.  It’s also conditional on the sale of our house being firm, which will happen Tuesday if they can meet their conditions.
We’re excited, but it’s with a lot of trepidation–these are such huge decisions it’s hard to get really excited over them!
Here’s the mls listing for the house we’re buying. Now that it’s sold this link may stop working…  http://www.mls.ca/PropertyDetails.aspx?PropertyID=6870788
Here are more pictures and panoramic views, which may keep working longer:  http://www.myvisuallistings.com/vt/14024
I think this link will bring you to a map, with a blue pin marking the house.  But I’m not sure.  http://maps.live.com/default.aspx?v=2&FORM=LMLTCC&cp=51.109581~-114.190457&style=h&lvl=18&tilt=-90&dir=0&alt=-1000&phx=0&phy=0&phscl=1&encType=1&cid=E88F13948BE16DED!116


Tune in again next week to see if the conditions will be removed…


From Kenan (who can just barely write his own name) a few days ago:

Hey, this is a good song!

“I had a tie,
   and it was buy-ed…”

I gotta write that down!
