Our house is officially rented! The tenant came over tonight to sign the lease and give us the deposit! What a HUGE relief to have this major item crossed off our list! It is wonderful that we got to meet the family. I assumed that whoever rented our place would be doing so from afar and that we wouldn't meet them before we left. It is also a nice that this family has met the lovely, Tassie! I know she will be in good hands with these people. However, I am not sure how their hands will hold up! Tassie, NO swiping!
In other sabbatical news, the kids and I received our passports today, as well! I wish I had had the camera out when Lauchlan opened up his. His face was pure delight! I am not even sure he knows exactly what the passport is for, but he was very pleased to see his photo on the inside. I had to put them away quickly before Lauchy tried to colour in it! Wouldn't that be fun?
The next big thing on our list is to find a place for us in Bristol. I composed an e-mail describing our family and what we are looking for. Now I just need to e-mail it to the two contacts that we have in Bristol. We are hoping that word-of-mouth might be the way that we can find a place to rent.
