Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, it’s been a crazy couple of weeks. First we got an offer on the house!!!!! We have been on the market for 6 months and kept lowering the price. We finally got a solid offer for $4K less than we spent on the house in 2001 but at this point we were happy to accept. It helps that it a young family who are first time home owners so I feel like we are paying things forward a bit. I was a little stressed about getting rid of the stuff we don’t need anymore, but the couple is willing to take anything we want to leave, and again I feel great about giving them a little bit of starter stuff with their new home, plus I don’t need to mess with Craig s list or another garage sale. Our last concern was the inspection, but it went great and we are completely on track.
The inspection was last Tuesday and we left first thing Wednesday morning to go to San Antonio to see our daughter graduate from Basic training. We have had very little contact with Kay in the last 8 weeks and were so excited to see her. It’s been particularly tough on Lee and we couldn’t wait to get down there. It was a fantastic weekend and San Antonio is a tremendous town. When we first got there we discovered Kay graduated with honors. This was a wonderful surprise as only 40 kids out of 400 made honors and she was one of only 5 women.
The entire weekend was wonderful with many instances where strangers came up and thanked her for her service. We also got free tickets to Sea World (where during the Shamu show they asked all the graduates to stand up and they got a huge round of applause) to the River Walk area and the Alamo which I highly recommend if you are ever in the San Antonio area. I won’t spend a lot of time on the week since it wasn’t camping related, but I thought I would share a few pictures so everyone can see how neat it was.
It was an amazing week and I know in my heart 100% that my daughter is on the right track. What a great feeling for any parent and I am so proud she has chosen to serve her country.
You would think it couldn’t get better but we came home to our rally friends Deb and Steve. They found a great spot here at our campground and we stayed up until 10 talking and catching up. Perfect end to a perfect weekend. Deb and Steve are staying all week and Cori and Greg are coming in this weekend. Going to be a fantastic pumpkin festival and so glad we have friends to share it with!!! My cup runneth over 🙂
