For those of you who have been reading about our family’s adventure, I have an update. For my new readers, our family (with 8 children still at home) left our secure life in Alabama (with a paycheck) for an exciting life of starting a vineyard in west Texas (no paycheck yet!). This adventure started in Jan. of 2008 and if you would like further background on this adventure, please read “When Our Grapes Come In”.
Now for the update: Our realtor called on Tuesday (1/12) to say that she was showing the house (near Mobile, AL). This may not seem like a big deal, but for us it is. We put the house on the market just in time to be too late – right as the housing market crashed! So, there has been little interest and this showing is very encouraging.
After the showing, she called again to let me know that it seemed to go well. The couple was able to visualize placement of their furniture in the house and seemed to really like it. We are praying for a good offer! Hopefully, they will make one, but even if not, the showing is encouraging!
I’ll keep you posted.
