Well, the seller on that house wouldn't budge on the price. In this market, that's ridiculous. It's a nice house, but there are brand new ones exactly like it for 15K less. So that's exactly what we put an offer on yesterday. We found a brand new one that sits kind of funny in the neighborhood, but has over a half acre lot. Same floor plan, same colors, everything. HUGE backyard. No landscaping in the back since it's new and it needs some of the fence put in (it shares a backyard with 4 other neighbors, so it needs a few sections). We met a couple of the neighbors and I think we'll really like living there. Anyway, we put in an offer and we'll find out soon.
In the meantime, I got a call from St. Mark's, the Catholic school I interviewed with and found out I got the job. I'm very excited! From the people I've met and things I've heard about the school, I think I'll be very happy there. I'll be teaching 7th grade Reading, English and Social Studies. I've never taught history before, so that will be a fun new challenge. I taught 7th grade English for 3 years though, so it will balance out :)
We leave on Wednesday for Utah. I am so excited. My uncle rented a cabin in the mountains and we have family coming from Idaho, Pennsylvania, Utah and California. We'll have 7 kids under 8, so it should be tons of fun for my boys. They just don't get to see their cousins enough since we're so spread out. We have different games and activities planned for the kids each day, so they are super excited, especially about the treasure hunt Grandma is planning.
I'm going to sign off for now. I'm hoping to actually get my stamps out today and create, but we'll see.
