This past weekend was a long one. I left work at 11:00 on Thursday and headed toward House B. Along the way I stopped for what was my first and possibly last interview. The school I was interviewing at had two openings in their elementary school. I felt pretty good about it going in. I knew that I was completely covered in prayers. Everyone told me to just be myself and I tried my best to do that despite the little bit of nerves.
This interview was so different from how I remember them. The last time I interviewed I was fresh out of college and had no real teaching experience. Going in with seven years of teaching experience changes the entire process. I was interviewed by a panel of four people, all who seemed so incredibly nice. It was a short interview - only about thirty minutes. I sat down and just shared with these people about what I do...what I love. I am so incredibly blessed to get to do what I love for a living. I walked out of there feeling very good and pretty confident, but at the same time not wanting to get my hopes up. It was my first interview and still very early in the year.
The principal called me the very next day and offered me a position teaching 5th and 6th grade Math. I was beyond thrilled. I immediately began doing a happy dance.
Andrew and I have been in awe all weekend over how quickly and easily this happened for me. It is simply one more way in a long list of ways God has been in the details of this move.
I'm a planner by nature so I've already started pinning tons of ideas and asking questions to every math teacher I know. Hopefully they won't start hiding every time they see me. I have a LOT of questions.
Saturday was spent shopping for a few little things for The Liberty Belle. It was a rainy nasty day, but we still enjoyed spending the day together driving around and shopping.
Easter Sunday was a great day. We went to church Sunday morning and heard a wonderful message. It's a message I've heard before, but the reminder was so good and refreshing Sunday. Too often I forget that the gospel is for me. Though I have a relationship with Christ, I'm still a sinner and I still need the gospel daily.
Christ is risen. And if that isn't something to be joyous about then nothing is.
After church we drove to my Mommom's house for lunch with the fam. It was so good. I'm going to love living at House B and being only 45 minutes away from them.
The weather was so nice Sunday. My parents, brother, and sister-in-law came out on a little Easter cruise with us. It was the first real test run The Liberty Belle has had. I had my camera with me all ready to document the day, but I left my SD card in my computer. I'm so bad about that.
We still haven't closed on House A so right now I'm sleeping on a mattress in the floor and living out of boxes. I don't mind sleeping on the floor, but I HATE having my closet all packed up. I'm seriously considering picking out five outfits and wearing the same thing every week. I'll have a Monday outfit, a Tuesday outfit, and so forth. The nerd in my wants to do it as an experiment and see how long it would take my students to notice. I know I have a few girls who would figure it out.
