Soooooo Excited!!!!

I have really been a bad slacker since the first of the year as far as blogging goes.  I read my fave blogs every day and I think to myself that I need to write one too, but it just doesn't happen because, frankly, I've had nothing to blog about.  But today I do!

Hut and I have been looking for a place to live near the kids.  A lady that goes to our church had a beautiful piece of property with a double wide for rent.  We went and looked at it and fell in love with it.  Well we prayed about it, Shelby (the owner) prayed about it and just about everyone we knew prayed about it.  Well all our prayers have been answered.  Shelby contacted the kids to let them know that she has chosen us to be her tenants. 

We won't be moving in until March but that is fine.  Shelby still wants to fix some things that the other tenants has done, even though we told her we'd take care of it.  But she has 4H all through February so she won't be able to take care of anything until the first of March anyways.  So it works out perfectly for everyone involved.  And she has had at least one other inquiry about renting.   Our God is so amazing and he has taught me patience with this.

I only have a couple of internet pictures since I didn't have a camera with me when we went to look at it.  It's 5 acres.  Shelby has horses and cows out on the property.  She will continue to care for them but it's kind of nice having them there.  Shelby also said that early in the morning there are deer on the property.  I can't wait to see that.  Plus I saw a fox squirrel....beautiful.  Once I get settled I'll try to take some photos of them.  Plus we have one neighbor.  Single dad with teenage daughter.  The land behind us is restricted so no one can build.  The land on the other side and across the street is a preserve so no one can build there either. 

The best part is Shelby is okay with us having dogs and cats.  No problem at all.  And the property is totally fenced in so the dogs can have their freedom. 

Here's where my new patience kicks in....I really want it to be March already, lol.  

Here is the view of the front of the house going in the front gate.  The house has 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and a HUGE Florida room on the back of the house. 

Here is an aerial view of the house and property.   You can see the house at the top of the photo. Right behind  the house is a small pull through garage with an attached shed.  Behind that and a little to the right is like a carport that the horse trailer sits under.   At the bottom of the page is the horse barn.  Not in the picture but right behind the barn is the cow pasture.   And the horses each have a pasture down both sides of the house. 

As soon as I get settled I will post a ton more pictures.
