What a blessing!

On Wed we got a call from our realtor letting us know we had an offer on the house. A low offer from a really interested couple who really liked our house! On Thursday we submitted a counter-offer and heard by that afternoon that they had accepted it! YAHOO! We are cautiously excited as we wait for the closing date of March 26th. We've had a sale fall through on closing day so we know this isn't a sure thing, BUT we are praying that God would allow the sale to happen! We (okay, I) have been looking at houses online since buying a house this summer is becoming more of a reality now! Our lease on our current residence is up in early July so we'd love to be able to purchase a home by then and stop throwing money away on a rental home. So, we are asking for many prayers...
*prayers that our house sale goes through
*prayers that God would lead us to a good realtor and loan officer
*prayers that we are able to find a new home by June (if that is the Lord's will!)

On another note...K has been sick with another cold that has turned into breathing problems. I took him to urgent care on Sunday. They gave him a nebulizer treatment and found an ear infection in his right ear. He never complains when he has an ear infection so of course we didn't know he had one. On Monday I made an appointment with a pediatrician to talk about asthma. He doesn't want to do any testing on K until he's at least 5, but the Dr. said it sounds like K has mild intermittent asthma. He only gets the breathing issues when he has a cold. So, we are to continue using his inhaler when he gets a cold. I figured that was what the Dr. was going to tell us, but I wanted to know we were doing the right things. I'll probably still have some sleepless nights when K experiences his breathing issues, but at least I know that we are doing all we can for him at this point!

Things have been crazy and hectic around here as usual. Thankfully, Mike will get a little break next week. There is no school on Thurs or Fri because of Rodeo Days in Tucson. Now, no one actually goes to the rodeo, but it's two days off so who's going to complain? :) Mike's parents will be coming in next week to spend a week with us. It'll be fun to show them around Tucson and share our favorite spots with them! It's supposed to be in the 80s!
