We did it!!! We have now wiped away two of our student loans. We have two more left--well, two more companies to pay off. They are our biggest loans too. So far we have paid off 27% of our debt. Lee made the payments this afternoon. I guess they won't clear for a couple of days, but that's okay! We are on our way to financial freedom!

If the above doesn't make you happy, the pictures below should.

The girls like to hug each other, and Cal got in on the action too. (The red eye remover did something weird to Cal's eyes in the third picture.)

Photos from 11/13/08--Happy Birthday to Brita on that day!

Good job on the loans!!!

If I had a job I'd totally try and see if I could race you on getting out of debt.

Maby once I graduate I'll do it.

I loved the pics by the way!
