YAY!! Good news!

We have reason to celebrate! As some may know/remember. I had been trying to get a job as a deaf education interpreter. Previously the position Ihad prefered was 30+ minutes away (and gas prices were higher). Then more ecently there was a position available at a High School about 15+ minutes away. I was looking for elementary (because even though I've been working with the deaf for about 12 years, I've never actually interpreted in a school setting and prefered to not be intimidated--I felt that elementary would be a safe place to start). So I did not go for it. Well about a week ago I got word that there was a position open at the elementary! So I did the application online and waited. Now the lady who does the hiring and is responsible for that department was out for the week. So I had to wait..........sigh. Then the day I knew she was back I called her in the morning. She asked me to bring in my resume (instead of e-mailing it) and I went in and ended up having an interview! Which I was prepared for because I was thinking that might happen. So, it went well....and I have begun the hiring process!! I still have to wait to finish all that stuff and for orientation. Please be praying that my paperwork will speed throught the system quickly, that it will stay on the top of the files and get through asap! So this means that my hubby will stay at home and homeschool and cook (of which he is well qualified for) and he will basically become Mr. Mom!! Both of us are excited because he loves to teach the kids and cook and he is so much better at 'keeping order' than me. I will be doing something to utilize my skills and abilities and be able to provide for the family at the same time. I know that this is not the norm (husband-home wife-at work) but we are so very ok with that. My husband will be in his area of gifting and I'll be in mine...sounds good to me. Oh, and another plus is that there is a lady we have met that lives around the corner from us who has hired my husband as a handy man and she has been such a blessing to us.
God is good...he has answered our prayers!! Thank you all for your prayers!!

How wonderful! I started as a deaf education major in college but ended up with a regular ed degree. Still a place in my heart for deaf culture.

Have a great time!!

That is awesome news! We can never really imagine what's going to happen in God's perfect timing. And I think it's cool that you are really using your talents for your family... Mr. Moms rock!

I love my Mr. Mom! He cooks healthier than me and is more organized and focused. So the end result will be a family that, because I work and he does the domestic duty, we will be able to pay basic living expenses and more, we'll be healthier and eventually thinner!! Our kids wiil be smarter and the house will be neater!! Talk about a win-win situation!
