This summer seems to be the one for moving for several in our family. The Lambs led it off by moving from Hutchinson Kansas to Medford Oregon. They seem to be settling in pretty well.
Now Kevin and Cory have bought a house in the country North of Sedalia. They moved into it this past weekend. They have a small acreage with a barn, a pond they can fish in, a fairly new garage/ workshop included with the house. They bought from a friend who needed to downsize and had bought a place in Sedalia. The house has 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, a large living room , eat-in kitchen, and garage on the top level. The walkout basement level has a BIG family room, kitchen, bedroom and bath,and a utility/storage room. There are several things they want to do to make it fit their needs/lifestyle a little better, but nothing that is a major concern right now. They still have a few things to get from the house they were renting, then they have a few things to do to it before the month is up to get it ready for the next renters. They had a deal with the owners concerning doing/finishing some updates to the home. So, they have some work to do on the floor in some areas and some plumbing issues to update/repair.
Robbie and Val are moving this coming weekend into their own house,too. They have been living in Clinton the past year while Val has been teaching at a high school about 15 miles away. The school district will give her an 'incentive' if she lives 'in-district' . Also, they spent a lot of time, both before and after school, at the school involved in one function or another. This way they might be able to 'go home' for a few minutes in between functions! The town they are moving to is: Lowry City. Val was so excited, after years of living in rentals (some not so great, either) to finally be able to buy her own place.
God's Blessing to all 3 families!
