Our First Home Together

Jason and I put an offer on this home in Farmington earlier in the week and it was accepted yesterday. We are soooo excited! We're hoping to move in about a month from now. The kids are excited to have a yard to play in and because it is located in a cul-de-sac, they will be able to ride their bikes all over the place without worrying us so much.
The home has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a large family room, brand new carpet and paint, 1/2 basketball court (you'll know where to find us in the evenings), food storage area and a beautiful view of the mountains. The neighborhood seems very nice and so far we've noticed a lot of younger families like ours on the street. We both feel really good about this home and are excited to open up that next chapter in our lives. After all the moving we've done over the last few years, it will be nice to settle into our own place and stay. Jason and I were counting up all the times that I have moved in my life, and it was somewhere around 25! In my 30 years of life, that averages out to moving every 1.2 years! Eeeekkkkk! I am looking forward to staying in 1 place for a long, long time. I think it will be good for all of us, especially our kids. They've had enough changes and offering them more consistancy is important to us as parents.
We drove the kids by the elementary that they will attend and they got really excited to see a pool and waterslides. Unfortunately for them, that was just the city pool next door. :)
I know it has been a while since my last post again. I've been really busy with work and kids and Jason injured his back a couple of weeks ago while helping the neighbor lift some heavy outdoor pots that they had just purchased. He felt his back go out and barely made it back to our house. He managed to crawl up the stairs to our room where he remained until we had an ambulance come pick him up the next day because he could barely move and wasn't able to get out of the bed. He was so embarrassed to have to be taken out that way, but it was the only way that we could get him to see a doctor. They shot him up with all kinds of stuff and sent us off with a few prescriptions. Between those and chiropractor visits, he's doing much better and was able to go back to work this past week. We're so glad that he's feeling better and he's happy to be able to do things other than laying in bed watching tv.
