Sooo Much Going On!

We've been so preoccupied with taking care of getting things done for the Kansas property that I haven't been too diligent in posting. I apologize! :)

Well, the buyers' loan fell through so we didn't sell this place as we'd hoped. We were afraid we'd lose the Kansas property but Daddy loaned us the money and we closed on it today. Woohoo! (Now to sell this place so we can pay him back asap!!!)

The church building needs a new roof so we've already ordered that as well and it will be put on sometime next month.

Oh wow! I just realized that I hadn't posted anything about the new property before, so I guess I'd better start over, shouldn't I?! LOL

We found 3.58 acres in western Kansas, out on the prairie, that has a 1940's brick Lutheran church and one-room schoolhouse on it. Here's the original pictures:

We got both of these buildings on the 3.58 acres for $13,000! They sit 7 miles from Hoxie, KS and are in excellent shape. The insides need some cosmetic work, but for the most part they're in incredible condition considering they've been sitting for about 10 years. The owner that had the property then died suddenly while renovating them.

Anyway, they're now ours and we'll be taking a trip out to take a look at everything very soon, probably once the roof is on. With luck we'll have a buyer for this place by then and we can actually make plans for when we'll move.

Honestly, I'm toying with the idea of just packing up and moving anyway. Unfortunately we have no funds for it as we will be making a few improvements around here to make this place a bit more marketable for buyers (and will also allow us to increase the price a bit as well!)

Anyway, that's basically all that's the big news that's going on. So, I'll post more as we know more!
