It's official, we're home owners! The signing went very well this morning. At the walk through, Maggie loved the back yard and said she wanted to "jump into this garden" and asked me where her shovel was so she could dig. Hopefully we'll take the girls back over this afternoon after nap time so Maggie can garden. I need to make her a sign that says Maggie's Farm! It was a little awkward because the seller and her family were still in the house carting out the last things and cleaning up. There's a bunch of trash on the curb that won't get picked up until Thursday, so I hope that really happens and we don't end up hauling it off to the dump ourselves. Maxine (the seller) was very sad about leaving the house she's lived in for 45 years. When someone asked her if it was a bitter sweet day for her, she replied, "Bitter." But she seemed to really like the girls and told us which houses had kids living in them. Sounds like there will be a few neighborhood kids around and one family just had a baby girl recently.
Then we had to go to Lexington to the lawyer's office for the actual closing. The girls where incredibly well behaved. Maggie ate her cheerios, raisins, and juice box and watched Dora on Mike's laptop. Kate slept half the time (who is this child? not the one I know - oh, wait, yeah she was up all night partying, so she was just sleeping it off in the office this morning!) and then drank a bottle and sat quietly the rest of the time! Then she napped in the car all the way home. Crazy. We gave Maggie a bowl of ice cream after lunch for being such a good girl this morning. We couldn't have asked for better. No surprises or anything troubling. We'll be taking lots of photos and putting them here and on Snapfish, so keep an eye out!
