Seminary/Move Update

Posted in Seminary at 5:41 pm by timin525

Well, as most of you already know, we are still here! Our house did not sell the first time on the market, so we decdied to take a break for a few months. Meanwhile, Tim has been busy doing side jobs and filling out job applications. Anything to make a few bucks to keep us afloat. The Lord is graciously providing and teaching us a few things about trust, faith, humilty, needs vs wants, etc. along the way.

The plan right now is to try to get the house back on the market by the end of March or first part of April. As I am typing this, I am realizing that Easter and Aubrey’s birthday are the first few weeks in April, so we may be better off waiting until those two weekends are out of the way. That way we don’t have to worry about having a showing during a birthday party. We will also most likely list the house with Johnson Reality. They only charge 1/3 of 1% commission and $500 to list it on the MLS. They do the paperwork, we do the rest. With the cheaper commission, we will be able to have a lower asking price and more wiggle room for negotiations.

Since we are pretty much guaranteed to be here until summer, I have also started attending the local homeschool group. It is called ARCHE, Arnold Regional Christian Home Educators. The girls, Aubrey and Norah, both take classes on Thursdays to supplement what I am doing with them at home. I really think they enjoy the social interaction and new experiences, though they both have some anxiety at the start of each class simply because they are not used to leaving mommy. While they are in class, Clara and I walk the track and visit with other homeschool moms with their little ones. So far I am enjoying the social interaction as well! I always like hearing about what other families are doing in their homeschools.

So for now, we are planted here because this is where we are. The hardest part about having our house on the market last fall was simply not knowing. I opted out of activities because I really thought that we would be moving. But now that we are still here, we are getting re-invloved. We cannot live in limbo. The Lord obviosuly wants us here right now, so we are doing our best to live out our calling where we are.
