Went out to the house tonight. I took the two older kids in one at time to look around. No one was there tonight. Good for them! They were amazed! It was so exciting to see them so excited. And I was really blown away at my middle girl. She knew which rooms were where, where closets were, without being told. They were so excited, and it warmed my heart to see it.
Afterward we went to my mom's and told her my sister about it. The looks I got said it all. The "Why in the WORLD would you take them and let them get excited about something that isn't final yet?" They don't have any faith in this, or us, or this loan it seems. I couldn't wait to share it all with them, and I left so disappointed. My mother had a short conversation with me. She pretty much said she wasn't going to the house until approval came through. She'd get excited then. Broke my heart. I wanted so bad for them to be excited WITH us. My MIL was excited and prayed over it. At least someone in my family is on my side. I know they are just worried about us. They are wanting to protect themselves from the disappointment they feel we are going to get. In a way I understand wanting to protect yourself, but in another way I am hurt by their lack of faith in us or this, and their apparent poor attitude about it all.
Oh well...silver lining....ok... When this approval comes through, I'll have to think of a clever way to show my mom and tell her out at the house. I'd love to get her out there and give her the good news. I have a few ideas.... But am open to more! Ideas anyone?
Anyway...here are the pics. I do have a some questions...
Ok...what is this?
Our plans and stuff!
So that's the updates! I'll discuss the door issue in another post soon!
