Today I'm getting ready for my parents to come. I'm trying to do all the laundry and cleaning. I'll clean the ground floor today (that's the living room, hallway, a bathroom and the kitchen), and the 2nd floor tomorrow. We will also clean Nicole's room tomorrow. My parent's will have her room, and she will sleep in the office. I also need to finish Fridays Bible study on James chapter 2. I don't want to concern myself with much when Mom and Dad get here. Tonight, We will sign the new loan on the house in Leimen. We will need to rent the house for at least 3 years before we try to sell it again. We keep getting requests from families who would like to rent. Today I got a request from a German family that has 4 kids, 2 cats and a dog. I guess we will just talk with them and see how good the dog and cats are. I've seen cats that are really fine, and others that scratch up all the walls. Some dogs are fine, others will pee all over the hardwood floors. We can not tell until we talk with them, and talk with whoever rents to them now. Most of the people who want to see the house need a place in 3 to 6 months. Of course we want a renter now. But we will still be picky because it's a long term commitment. Anyway, I'm excited about my parents coming. They are suppose to fly tomorrow. I hope it goes OK. It's really a long trip. Jessica, Nicole and I look forward to meeting them in Frankfurt!
