Will brought home the final contract for our house in Columbia. We signed and initialed everything and he took the contract to the hospital this morning so he can fax it back to Andy. By the way, if you need a realtor in Columbia, SC, Andy Walker (Bollin, Ligon, Walker) is your man. He showed us exactly what we asked him to - didn't go 'just above' our price range (until Will asked him to!), was patient, let us talk his ear off, worked with our time table, filled us in on each of the neighborhoods and more.
I know it's not technically our house until we close on May 1, but every time we went back to it (3 times in 3 days during our trip to Columbia last weekend), it started to feel more and more like home. We both started imagining our furniture in each room. For the record, many of the rooms will be quite stark for a good little while . . . good news is that on rainy days, the kids can ride their scooters in the house!
