thank you for those that have said you would lift up a prayer for us. i guess i will go ahead and speak it. it still makes me nervous to because i want it sooo bad and i don't want to get my hopes up. but here goes.....
ben flew out last night to little rock and today at 1pm he has an interview with the conway school district. please pray that all goes well. that he shows them what an awesome teacher he is and that they will see that. also as before stated please pray that this is GOD's will. i know that nothing will be blessed if it isn't in his plan.
now some of you may need more background on this issue. since i moved to texas i have been trying to get out. being a native arkansan its just in my blood. lol. the air force brought us here exactly 7 years ago this month. and when ben got out 4 years ago and started teaching we were still "stuck" (as i used to say) here. but with in the past year i had come to peace about things. that i was going to be happy where i was. GOD knew what my heart wanted.... i had been petitioning for a long time. lol. but i guess i finally quit worrying about it and let him take control
this past year ben got all the requirements for his teaching certificate to be good in arkansas. so we started applying (i said we because i did as much paper work and mailing as he did). there aren't that many options for us mainly because arkansas pays their teachers so much less than texas. only a handful paid near what he was making now. conway was one of them.
and you can imagine our excitement when a social studies position opened up. and our even more excitement when they called him for an interview.
see i am already getting worked up. i need to remain calm. and not think to far ahead. i just ask that everyone pray. pray. pray.
i know i am going to be a wreck at around 1. lol
