We got a lead on a house that has over 3000 square feet. The man we contacted about it told Gary that we couldn’t live in that house because we had too many children!!! Gary called some agencies of the city of York and found out that the addendums to that rule state that if the children are all your own children, that rule doesn’t hold and square footage of the house makes a difference, and a den can qualify as another bedroom. He called the guy back and told him what he found out. The guy called Gary back, rather apologetically, and said that he’s not well-versed in these things, and that he sees the worst of situations in his business and hardly ever sees a family with our situation where all of the children are our natural-born children.
He is very eager to show us the house as soon as possible. Unfortunately, he is out of town and won’t be back until tomorrow. I have an appointment to go see the house at 11:00 tomorrow morning. I think this is it!
It looks like we’ll be able to be in the house by tomorrow or Friday!
Our moving truck is sitting outside of our hotel room just waiting to be unloaded into our new house. And the house is only 10 minutes from here!
So everything is looking WAY better today.
Another praise: I went to rent a van so we could go see the house and do a few other things (like eat out) and I asked for a mini-van or SUV. I had previously mentioned the fact that we had 10 kids. He pointed out the window and said, “I know something that would work even better for you. That 15-passenger van just came back.” I couldn’t believe it. Those things are so hard to get a hold of. It had come back in moments before we walked in and nobody else had reserved it. So we got a 15-passenger van for the same price as a mini-van!
I am so grateful for the way God is moving for us. I knew He would. I just wondered when.
Eating Grandma’s fudge. Grandma sent a care package with Grandpa. Of course, it contained FUDGE!
Silly pictures – the LAST ones at the hotel!
