Jobs, A Birthday, and Praise Team.

There is so much happening that I totally forgot to post this week! First off I want to wish Aidan A Very HAPPY 4th Birthday!
He had to share his birthday with the super bowl this year, but it was Ok with him since he was also able to share it with some good friends. We went to our friends house and had a good time, and he got to play with lots of his friends. We will celebrate further in March when we head back to California for a trip to the San Diego Wild Animal park...or as Aidan puts it, "to feed the giraffes".
I had my "audition" for praise team on Tuesday and am happy to announce that I will start singing this upcoming Sunday. I am very excited for that. And Pastor Greg gave me some good information on how to build my range back up again, since it has been so long since I have actually sung in a group.
On the job front: Still no news of the auditing job for myself. I called and spoke with her on Tuesday and she said that there were a few people who had pushed their interviews into this week and that I should hear something by the end of the week. I will probably wait until Tuesday and if I don't hear anything then I will call her again as I was told that the position was to start on Valentines day.
On the job fron for Aaron: The railroad is hiring 4 instructors positions. 2 of them are here in the SLC, one in Spring TX and the other in Chicago. He has decided to put in for it. We are not sure what will happen and are leaving it in the Lord's hands. We know that he will move us in need be and will have us stay if our time in SLC is not up. We are praying that he guides this process. This has been a position that Aaron has been working towards, it would get him out of the field and back into a class room, which is where he is meant to be. He loves teaching and it shows. Please, pray for us as we are going through this process of change. I think it would be good for both of us with a change in jobs, but only God know's what is best.

*****A quick update: I just recieved an email that I did not get the job, but my interest is being placed in a "pool of candidates" to choose from if extra need arises. Not exactly what we were hoping for, but at least I know now. Thanks for the well wishes.

Happy Birthday Aidan!!

I knew you would make the team! WTG!!

I was just thinking about Aaron yesterday and the TX thing. I hope you don't leave anywhere just yet as we are still here. Chicago is pretty pricey to live...hope you don't have to go there. We were asked to go there in 1999.

Happy belated Birthday to Aidan! He looks so darling in that picture!

Congrats on making the praise team, too! I am sure you sound beautifully. What are you singing? I am sure you mentioned it before, but I can't remember.

Good luck with the job decisions! I am sure the Lord will do what is best for your family.

I see SLC in my son's future, my daughter-in-law singing in the praise group and my grandkids growing up in beautiful Utah

Happy Belated Birthday to Aidan! He will love the Wild Animal Park!

Congratulations on making the Praise Team ~ I was sure you would! I'm sure you will enjoy it!

That is too bad about not getting the auditing position. It is their loss. I hope that You will soon have another opportunity to get a better job. I hope that Aaron will be able to get one of the teaching positions! Let us know how that goes.

Happy Birthday Aidan. I bet that will be a blast going to the Animal Park next month!

Congrats on joining the praise team. That's awesome! I'm sorry you didn't get the job, but maybe it will work out better since you still get to work at home. I hope you hear soon about the job for Aaron.
