We FINALLY closed on our new house! We had lived with my parents since the beginning of July, Jack was born in September, and we were finally able to gain some more space for our family of 5! It was extremely helpful living with them though! They would run the kids to and from school for me so I could stay home with Jack and keep him on schedule. (The school was a good 30 minutes away from them since we picked one near our future home). They also helped with rearing Owen and Mason both before and after Jack's arrival, and they babysat while I went 45 minutes one way to my many late-pregnancy OB appointments. And I'm pretty sure I only went to the grocery store twice in 4 months! My dad LOVES the grocery store and would do our shopping along with his. I should also mention we were able to do this (and save some moolah) because Aaron's parents offered to keep our animals for us! I'm pretty sure Jaxson and Bear (their dog) marked every square inch of their carpet. So we are extremely thankful to both of our families for all the help!!
