One More Down!

We've finally paid off Student Loan #2!!  Yay!  Yippee!  Woo hoo!  It seems like it's been forever since we paid off the first student loan!


While I want to be debt free as soon as possible, Chris and I have decided to save up for a down payment on a larger house before paying off the last two student loans.  No, it's not strictly the DR plan, but we think it's necessary before expanding our family (and we need to do that sooner, rather than later).

Playing catch-up.

Wow, so much has happened in the last 5 months!  I didn't realize it had been so long until I just counted on my fingers...yep, just did that.  I'm going to spend the next couple of nights playing catch-up with all that's been going on. 

1.  Caleb started daycare.
2.  Caleb started therapy for a communication delay.
3.  Caleb's numerous trips to different places.
4.  Update on student loan balance.
5.  New family photo session for Christmas cards.

Stay tuned for these stories and pictures!

Student Loan #1 is GONE!

The Ivester Family has paid off the first of four student loans!  It was a small loan used for Chris' graduate school.  Graduate school was something we easily could have cash flowed, but instead took out a student loan.  Ugh.

We have three to go, totaling $51,800.  Only 11 more months until DEBT FREEDOM!

Easter and First Trip to the Zoo!

Officially, it was Caleb's second Easter holiday, but in all fairness it was the first that he was actually awake for.  During his first Easter, I think we were still in that honeymoon phase where he was still sleeping all the time.  Oh, how fast a year goes by.  This Easter was so much fun though.  He had just started walking so he wanted to walk everywhere, but only if he had a hand to drag with him!



Caleb had his first trip to the zoo this past Sunday, May 15th.  He was definitely more interested in the other children there than the animals!  We managed to get a few pictures even though he was squirming to get down.  He wants to walk everywhere now, even though he is still a little wobbly.  I just noticed that he has his hand in his mouth in every picture.  I guess if it's that or the pacifier, then I'll take the hand.




One Step Closer to DEBT FREEDOM!

Monday, May 9th, we paid off the last of our consumer debt!  Now we officially own everything that we've ever bought, including the tired and broke down furniture that is in need of replacement!

We have paid off over $63,000 of debt with another $58,000 to go in student loans.  Only 13 more months until DEBT FREEDOM!
