So, this is the week of final preparations!!!!! We are signing the paperwork today for the financing for the new house sometime today (March 12th) then we have to wait three days for the title to be transferred and cleared and then the closing is scheduled for Friday as long as things go as planned. We'll sign the deed, transfer ownership of the house, get the keys and then the move will commence. Finally a place of our own, never to move again as long as we pay our bills.
The first step will be to enroll as a J1 host family again, (As the landladies daughter wouldn't allow us to have other J1s after the first summer we did this on the auspice of insurance risk) but then the two Serbian ladies from 2 summers ago are coming back, they will spend the summer with us, and then Maja will go back to Syracuse and Jelena is off to other parts of the world unknown.
