So it's been an interesting few months for us...many people have been asking us about our job situations and I finally feel comfortable making the news public.
S has been working nearly full time at Performance Bicycle since the spring. He is currently in training as an Operations Manager. Once he finishes the training process he will be full time with benefits. He loves his job and is very good at it, both things we've been praying for him about for a long time. He still commutes by bike and actually gets rewarded for it! The downside is that it doesn't pay enough for me to just work part time like I have been for the last two years.
That being said...I will be working in Dallas ISD as an Instructional Coach for math teachers at a campus about 10 miles from our house. Getting a job offer this early in the summer was a huge blessing. I will still have a teacher schedule, and while I have experience with teacher workshops and mentoring, this will be the first time I get to do it full time. It's the kind of job I was praying to get, and I am so grateful. I will continue to work at the Dallas Zoo occasionally and sell Silpada jewelry, because those are just too fun to pass up!
So the question most people will have is...what are we doing with the munchkin? Fortunately we do not need full time care; between our two work schedules it'll probably be about 20 hours a week, but at this point, we're not sure what the hours would be exactly. We'd like someone to come to our home, so if you are interested or have someone you would recommend please let me know. I know God has the perfect person already determined.
Thank you so much for your prayers and encouragement during this time of uncertainty. God is good and always provides.
