Today is Friday aug 31 and we are having our first visitor who is coming to visit us in Ogden...Stef is a friend from Pilgrim PCA in Philly and she is staying for the weekend. We are SO thrilled to have her come and are spending the day getting ready for her. Ben has the day off which is great b/c I have help in cleaning and get to spend the day with my best friend! He is so great!
So, I also want to thank you all for your prayers and encouragement about finding a job. Praise God...I was offered a one year position as a school counselor/case manager for SLC school district working with at-risk elementary students. So, it is not the high school guidance counselor position that I really want, but it is a good start considering that I couldn't even apply for any positions until August...and school positions aren't that easy to come by this late in the summer. I think it will be a good fit. I will use a lot of the skills that I have used in previous jobs and will learn some new ones. The commute will stink, but the pay is really good, so that helps. AND this means we can definitely plan a trip home at Christmas since I will have that week off! YAY! We will get to see all of the Hardy and Holler families...including our nephew Logan who seems to be as thrilled as we are at that idea! check out his darling smile!
