I am happy to announce that I am once again an employed member of society!! I will be the new PE teacher at Oak Hills Elementary.

I'm so grateful for this job. I know I definitely had some divine help when it came to finally landing the perfect new job. I was actually applying for a different job at the school district and asked my neighbor if I could list her as a reference since she also works for the district. It turns out that she was hiring at her school for the PE job and they hadn't even put it on the district website yet. This job was better hours and pay. I met with her and before I knew it she asked me if I wanted the job.

It's perfect. It's good pay. Two days a week so I still get to stay home with my baby most of the week. It'll be nice to get out of my house once in a while!

I would like to say that I never got discouraged over these past 4 months of searching. I would like to say that I never doubted God had a plan. But that would be lying.

Why is it that God always seems to push you to your limits and make you wait until the last moments of desperation before he finally let's the sun peek through the clouds? I know that it wouldn't be a test if I wasn't actually tested but believe me I was getting worried.

Troy and I had a looming deadline. His school schedule will be hectic this fall and as a result his hours at work will be cut significantly. I needed to find something fast! My first day of work is the first day his schedule changes! Definitely cutting it close!

I know the next year or two might be difficult for Troy and I as he tries to finish his degree as quickly as possible. My poor husband is working himself to the bone! However, I know that we will always be taken care of. Sometimes I get so jealous {even though I try not to} of all my friends with husbands who have finished school, own houses, go on fun trips, etc... I'm so quick to forget my blessings. It's a bit obvious why God constantly has to remind me by putting me through these "tests" {when will I learn?}. But I'm so grateful for the reminders!

Also, if any of you know someone who might be willing to watch the worlds cutest baby Tuesdays and Wednesdays starting on August 23rd... let me know!

And all you Rec Center peeps also as of today... I'm baaack. Yeah, yeah, yeah... don't say it.


  1. Congrats Les! It really does blow waiting for that first light though. I hear ya!

    Glad everything worked out! Trials rock and suck at the same's bitter sweet.

    Wish I could watch Izzy for you!

  2. congrats les! its amazing how the Lord works! what a wonderful blessing for you and your little family!

  3. I'm so happy for you that you finally found a job! I can totally relate to the frustration and esp. to the jealousy of other people whose husbands are done with school: Matt still has at least 5 years left, so a lot of the financial burdeen of the next couple years rests on me. But like you, I know that God has a purpose for every trial we're given. Hope you love the new job--it sounds great!

    Oh, and I love it when new people check out my blog--esp. old school friends :)
