New Address

Many have asked where our new house is.  Well the address is:

7571 SW Mapleleaf Street
Portland, OR  97223

For those of you locals, we are basically in the Metzger area off of Hwy 99, near the Tigard Fred Meyers.  In between 217 and I-5 and near Hall Blvd.  Basically we are "near" everything!

We should be in the house on Saturday and I will try to take and post some pictures.  My computer has been less than cooperative lately so I don't know if it will let me download anything.  I will do my best.

Thank you for all the well-wishes.  I know it took lots of prayers to get us here!

So now with very sore hands and a signature I no longer recognize, Jimmy and I are officially first-time home owners.  It is still hard to believe that we actually managed to do it.  We should get our keys and officialy take over the property on Saturday.  It has been a very long process (I think we started around February 2007 -  with a little detour to DC in the middle) but the wait was well worth it.  I think I toured every house for sale in Portland so I have no doubt we found the right one for our family. 

We will officially be moving in the weekend of 8/21-23.  Yippy!!!
