It's kind of hard to believe that we'll be able to move in that soon since last time we were there they were just putting insulation in, but they were very hesitant to give us a close date until they said they could know for sure. It really has been a bit of a rollercoaster with the closing date. At first we wanted to close mid-August to line up with my free time at work, so they delayed sending for permits to hit that timeframe. Then, the market got crazy and they couldn't find enough workers so they moved our estimated date to September 27! Now they gave us the official word that it is in the last few days of August. For most people, the weekend that they move isn't based so much around a work schedule, but since I work entirely from home, it really did matter for me. I have a very hard time concentrating when things aren't really set up and somewhat unpacked. We're so thankful that I'll be able to take an entire week off of work.
Funny story, my family has always seemed to move in early September, on my brother's birthday (I believe we've done that twice!). Ironic how our moving weekend falls on his birthday too, ha!

This post will be brief because we have a very busy day and week ahead of us, but we wanted to get these pictures from the weekend posted about our progress. They have started the lathing (the white stuff on the outside of the walls) and are almost done with electrical, A/C and plumbing. We have our first walk through this week to review all those items. So excited about the progress that has happened in the past few weeks!

We had a great 4th of July this year with family! It was a strange day in Phoenix, cool (for July!), rainy and cloudy. Not exactly what you think of for 4th of July, but we loved it. By night the sky had cleared and we went swimming, watched fireworks from the backyard and played with sparklers.
