It has been a very busy and tiring week! Phil and I were in the Manitowoc area Monday through Wednesday looking at houses. We saw one on Wednesday that might be a possibility but had many things that didn't meet our needs with 6 kids, home schooling and a need for a room designated for therapy. We looked at 20 homes, went into 8 of them and none really met our needs.

We came home and spent hours more looking through homes online. We found another 12 to drive by/look at. Phil left Thursday early afternoon to head back down to look at those homes. He found one that looked like it would be perfect for our family. When he called the realtor he found out that it already has a offer on it. We were so disappointed. We decided to pray and see if there were any holes in the offer or clauses that may allow us to put in a secondary offer that might have a chance.

Phil heard from our Realtor this morning. He told Phil that the current offer has a "bump clause" that states they have to sell their home within a couple weeks or they loose the opportunity to keep the home that we are looking at. Phil is seeing the house this morning and plans to put an offer in on it this afternoon. If the other person who put in the offer cannot sell their home within the next couple weeks we might be able to get the house! It seems awfull to pray that the other people won't sell their house.... so we will pray that God will make His will evident. We will pray that if this is the home God wants for us that He will allow our offer to be accepted as a secondary offer and that within the next couple of weeks it will be accepted as the primary offer.
The two weeks waiting will give us the opportunity to continue to look as well as to make all the necessary preparations for our financing to go through quickly.

Pray with us that God will make it evident if this is to be our home, or that He will guide us to the house he wants us to have.
