Okay, since it has been a month since my last post, I guess I should update because there is kind of a lot going on.
Since my last post.....
- I have finished my first year of teaching. It was definitely a learning experience full of ups and downs. At the beginning of the year I remember being nervous of how the year would turn out. I was not only nervous on how I would do as a first year teacher, but how I would help the students I had to succeed and be ready for 1st grade. I learned things not to do, but I also learned that I think I am cut out for this job. With that being said, I now am in limbo as to whether or not I have a job next year. I do know that if I get my job back I will be on temporary contract again. That means I will have the job for the year, but it is uncertain about the following year. People may think I am crazy, but I am not really freaking out about whether or not I have a job. I have this peace about it all that I don't really know how to explain. Things will work out the way God has them planned so why should I stress out, right?
- Dudley and I are trying to close on a house. Remember how I have that peace about not having a job? Well, I need to keep reminding myself about that when it comes to us getting this house. The house we are wanting to buy is a perfect starter home for Dudley and I. There are limited things that need to be fixed besides painting. It has 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. The problem with this house is that we were to close on June 15th. That may have happened, but Dudley and I are applying for a specific loan and they are behind in their work. Now, sometimes this wouldn't be a problem, but when you live in an apartment where your lease was up in May, and you are now paying month-to-month, you begin to freak out a little bit .We now have to be out of the apartment by June 30, so things are going to be cut close. My mom and dad have said that if we need to we can stay at their house, but then we would have to figure out what to do with all of our stuff. So, needless to say we are in a time crunch. We are praying for the best!
Well, I should probably get back to getting this house ready to move, wherever that may be :)
