I know I’ve mentioned it a few times before, that our house is teeny tiny. Like, we outgrew it 2 kids ago. I do love our yard, and our location. And I like that we can get it clean in about 45 minutes. And our payments are cheap. But it’s still too small. And, being honest, sorta shabby. I prolly won’t invite you over because both of us are a little embarrassed of it – which is pride, I admit, but we still don’t host much anymore. But that’s neither here nor there because, it is what it is and not changing this week.
The point of this post is this. We are committed to Christian school for our kids, and there are FIVE of them. Our goal is to pay this house off very quickly, save for a larger one, and rent this one out – that rental income funding their education. At the rate Andy is going, we can probably do that in 3ish years, maybe 4.
We KNOW it will be hard. We’re cramped as it is; I’m guessing it will be worse in four years. (Although, I do love having my kids close while they are little.) The thing is, though, if we stick it out and do it this way, we know it will also pay off in the end. It will be more than worth the pain now.
And that’s where our friends and family come in – to stick by us when we want to give up, when we’re tired and frustrated and feeling claustrophobic. To cheer us on because you know our goals and can remind us that yes, it will be worth it.Filed under To Share | Comments (9)
