After a lot of back and forth about when and where we’re going to move (baby #4 is coming in February), we’ve had some interesting decisions to make. We’re buying a house! We’re still planning to move out of Alaska in 2 years, and we’ll either be selling the house or renting it out.
It’s crazy how the house deal came about. We went to look at a 4 bedroom rental for $1800 per month (heat included) and almost decided to take it. Of course, my husband and I sat back on accepting for a few days to pray about it and get some God direction. It came. A few days later a 4 bedroom house came on the market for a great price- the mortgage/insurance/tax would only be around $1400 a month!
It made much more sense to pay less per month and own the house than pay more and rent, so we took it!
I can’t wait to show the pictures of our new house as soon as we move in (September 24th). There will be plenty of before and after photos, as well as decorating articles to go with decorating the new home. Now packing and moving is much better at 5 months pregnant than 6 or 7 months, so let’s cross our fingers for a quick closing…
