my new house!

We bought a house this week!
We were planning on moving back to southern alberta at the end of the month and living in my parents house for July and August while they are in Montana. Then we didn't really know where we would be in the fall. We had thought about buying a house, but we would just have to wait and see. Houses in Lethbridge are so expensive, and the opportunity came up to buy this house in Raymond. Houses are selling quick right now in Raymond, and it was a good deal. There were some other people going to look at it Monday night, so spur of the moment Monday morning Brad hurried home from work, we threw a few things into a bag, and took off for Raymond. We take possession on June 30! It all happened so fast but we are really exicted. For those of you from Raymond, the house is Mark and Becky Rompains.
We didn't get the best pictures of it, but here are a few. The grass is getting replaced. And of course Brad already has plans for the landscaping. It has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. It's a great "starter home". Becky has the house painted really cute, I might change a few things just to make it my own, but we can move right in and feel at home. So that is what we are dong this summer!

So far having your own home is great! Really the real estate is hot even in Raymond.. who knew. Have fun in Southern AB. When we make it down we will have to see the new place, Can't wait
