Just Tell Us The Truth...

This makes everything crystal clear for me.


The House Hunt Continues

Well, hello friends! I'm sorry it has been so long since my last post! Things have been hectic in the Pometto household, but for good reason!

We have been looking for houses, and are hoping to buy within the next couple of months. We are blessed to have amazing landlords right now that have agreed to work with us by allowing us to sign a month-by-month lease until we find something! They are fantastic.

Anyway, we thought we had found our "perfect" house. It was in a cute little neighborhood in Ames - brick, 3 bedroom, 2 bath, unfinished basement - seemed perfect. We had agreed that it was a little over priced the first time we looked at it, but last week they dropped their price by $10,000! We went back to look again, and over the weekend decided that we would put an offer in on Monday.

We made an appointment with our realtor (who is so wonderful!) so she could show us a few other houses, and then we could look at this house last - one more time - before submitting our offer. Well, we looked at about 7 other houses and each one seemed to confirm that we were making the right decision with this house that we had decided on.

We pulled onto the street and were anxious to get inside "our" house again. We pulled up to the driveway...and the disappointment set in. "SALE PENDING". What? How could this happen? This is our house!

Our realtor quickly looked online and it hadn't even been posted as pending on her MLS yet - so it had to have just been accepted.

We were so sad. We have been kind of moping about it since then, which is silly, because, although it was discouraging, we know that God has a plan.

I just told my youth group kids the other night that we often get so wrapped up in our circumstances that we forget to see how God is working in a situation. There will be something better. Jesus, we trust in you.


Obama and the Freedom of Choice Act


I think everyone should check out my friends' blog (Chris and Sarah). Chris wrote this particular entry and included some youtube video on the topic. It's definitely worth your time to see what Senator Obama is "promising" America.


Pumpkin Patch

Last weekend, Ryan, Kathleen, Joe, Roman, and I went to the Center Grove Orchard in Cambridge. I was amazed at how many things they had to offer families! What a fun outing with good friends. :)

Also, to give you a little Roman update, these are his latest words and phrases - which you really have to hear in person to get the full effect. He is so funny!
  • That's amazing!
  • Rock-a-baby (for "rock-a-by-baby")
  • Sit down
  • Shut the door
  • c'mere (come here)
  • want some milk
  • ok! (this is often a very dramatic word, ie. OOOOOOOOKKKKKKKKKKK!)
  • read
  • his current default color is "white". This could be referring to Kim's hair color or a frog.
  • too many others to name!
I hope this finds you all enjoying the beautiful fall weather! We are loving it!
God bless you!
