Five for Friday: A Life-Changing Week!

In the past eight days, my life changed.
As many of you know, my hubby got his Masters from NYU in May and we were on the hunt...for anyone who would pay him to do what he loves :)
Which is archiving, or preserving, arranging, digitizing, and organizing documents and artifacts.

So we had been searching.
And applying.
And applying some more.

And then last Thursday, he received a call.
Then he had an interview.
Then the next day he got a call
asking if he would be willing to fly out.
So we hopped on a plane.
He had the second interview...
and was offered the job on the spot!
We spent the day exploring and apartment hunting.

So, the next stop in our joy-filled journey will be....
Seattle, Washington!

In a little over 2 weeks, I will officially be...
Any other Washington bloggers out there?

We couldn't be more thrilled!
And nervous.
And excited. 
And sad.

it gets better...
Not only did hubby get a job...
but I did too! 

I inquired about a school on Saturday morning.
Monday afternoon I got a call asking if I could come in
immediately for an interview.
Tuesday I filled out the application.
Wednesday I was notified that I was chosen!
Christian school.
5th grade.
No joke.
God is so faithful!

So in less than a week, we found both had jobs across the country.
Oh, and we leased an apartment in our spare time.

The rest of my week has been filled with...
Endless Phone Calls
Moving Details/Research
Well that's my Five for Friday!
Stay tuned for further news of our adventures in Seattle!

    Fifth Grade Wit and Whimsy

  15. CONGRATULATIONS to both of you. God is good! I have a soft spot for Washington. I graduated from high school and met my husband there. We have many relatives from the Puyallup area and visit at least once a year. You are probably tired of hearing this already but make sure and pack your rain gear! All of that rain makes it beautiful and green year round. I love it! Happy trails on your new journey, Heather

  16. I'm excited for your new adventure! What an amazing story about God providing BOTH jobs! Best of luck to you.

  17. God is good! We will miss you guys and Jess, it will be difficult to find someone to do the narration and story telling during our concerts like the way you do! Jonathan, you have been and continue to be a friend and guide to Prantik. Thank you for that!
    May God bless you richly in your new adventure and bless those around you both whose lives you will be touching.
