Making Headway!

So, we're slowly making progress on our road to Scotland and while I'm still a little stressed, things are getting a little better. All of our Financial Aid has gone through, so at least we know how we're going to pay for all of this. =) We've also got out eyes on a few flats that we really like and our friends that live over there are checking them out for us. So, hopefully we'll get all that figured out soon.
We're still working on our Visa's, but we are in the process of figuring it out.
Since it is now July.. HOLY COW.. we are getting ready to put our Escort up for Sale. I'm really hoping that we can sell it sooner rather then later, but we'll see how it goes. First we have to get the side mirror fixed because someone hit us while we were parked at Wal-Mart. But, once we get that fixed we'll be posting it.
We're also still figuring everything out for our Yard Sale. The pile of things we're going to get rid of is just growing and growing. I really hope that this is a success because it will help us out a ton.
Anyway, so on to some other news. Yesterday was the 4th of July and it was SO much fun. We had a barbecue with some friends and then I took the boys to the Greenshow and they got to see Daddy a little bit at work. It was really fun. Sadly we didn't do fireworks because Steven works evenings Monday-Saturday, but we are planning on lighting some off on the 24th again since Steven will be home. So, the boys will get to see some eventually.
My Mom and Dad also drove down for the Day on Saturday and it was really fun. We just hung out and I made us all dinner and then we went to the Greenshow with them as well so they could buy a Festival Tart from my Sister. There are only 2 more times that we'll get to see my Parents before we move, so it was both fun and sad at the same time.
I can't think about saying good bye to our families yet, or else it makes me sad. We actually have a family trip to San Diego with Steven's family coming up in a few weeks and its going to be so much fun. We're very excited to get to see almost everyone. We're sad to miss Braden who is still on his mission, but he'll be with us all in thought. =)
Anyway, I'll keep updating things as we know them, so I hope the suspense doesn't kill you. =)
