Leaving La Crosse

Well, we kept everything we would need to start a beautiful life in Paradise, California. The home we wanted had another buyer and just became available. I am running to Paradise to sign papers and buy our house before someone else makes another offer. Buying a home is so stressful! I am hopeful that since there was an offer that held up the sale and didn't go through, the seller will be ready to accept ours.

I see it as a sign that this is the home for us. It has plenty of room for my garden and a private drive to keep the kids safe.


I will take the two youngest with a load of household goods and Matt will follow with the big kids and another load next month. His California licensure is still not ready. It is a complicated process with little help form the licensing board and State of California.
