The owner of the house called today and asked us to come up and make a final decision on what furniture we wanted, now that his kids have been through everything. We paid for a few items but most of the stuff he just gave us. Some chairs and lamps and desks and dressers and things. The house won't be quite as empty now after we move in.
We took the kids along this time. The woman that was with the doctor (not sure if she was his companion or his helper) said many times how happy she was that we brought them. She said it made her feel better and she thought it would make the doctor feel better, too. She said it was a house made for children and she seemed delighted with their obvious excitement.
