All summer one thing of the other came along that stopped us from going any place. It was the weather, moving my mother-in-law to a place near us, her illness and need for help. I repeatedly sent in applications to different schools and the middle of last week, I got a call to report to the administration building in Topeka as there was a job for me at Chase Middle School. I had to go in Friday to do paperwork. I missed the new person orientation as they called me late. I really don’t know anything about the school except that we drove by it Saturday night to see where it might be.
I am thankful for all the people who prayed for me during this time. I feel anxious about this job though. It has come so suddenly. I don’t know how many students I will have, if I will have my own room or whether I will be team teaching somewhere. Then there is the paperwork which I imagine will be different and so I will have to learn that. I wish it was closer to home but it is closer than what the co-op had offered me. I guess it is new person jitters. I have to report starting Wednesday and the kids come next week. Where did the summer go?
