Our rental application was approved today! We checked out of our hotel and made an appointment to meet our landlord and pick up our keys.
She couldn't meet with us until late in the afternoon, so we spent a few hours at a park near our new home. It has a pond, about a mile of walking/biking paths, and a really cool playground with . . .
. . . a little zip line . . .
. . . fun slides . . .
. . . a climbing wall (race you to the top!) . . .
. . . and a panel with the ASL alphabet, in case you want to brush up on your skills.
And now, the moment we've all been waiting for! We finally got the keys to our new home: a three-story townhouse on Goose Landing Circle in Columbia, MD. It's even got a white picket fence. Most of our belongings are still in a trailer in a nearby town, so we'll be sleeping in sleeping bags and eating dinner on the floor tonight, but at least we now have three bedrooms and three bathrooms instead of one of each at the hotel!
