Karrie's Summer Job

I will be taking the Blockbuster position. My co-worker had her previous care giver return, so she won't be needing me this summer. If I would like to, I can continue working at Blockbuster through the school year and so that may be very helpful for us.

We are continuing to ask for prayers for Bill and finding the Job that God would like him to have. He is continuing his search and applications. We are waiting on the right job to come his way.

Thanks for all your prayers and thoughts.

Last weekend and Karrie's summer job!

Last weekend we had a blast. Bob and Erica spent the weekend with us and we had so much fun. I hope and pray that they can move down here very soon.

Now it comes down to the desision. Which job do I choose? I have been offered a position taking care of my co-worker's son for the summer and a position at Blockbuster. I can work 40hrs at blockbuster, and 27.5 hrs w/co-worker's son and make the same money. I can also work more than 27.5 hrs, but less pay if I want for my co-worker. (27.5hrs at 11 per hr, then hrs after that at 8.50 per hr.)

Now... do I take both jobs? just one? what do I do????


We love and miss you all!!!

End of school

Today I finished cleaning my room, packing and all of my paper work. I was supposed to work Wed and Thur, but since I have cleaned up so much junk from the other teacher, they let me have the days off. Yes, on our last day of school Heather and I dressed alike, and no, we didn't plan it.

I'm excited to have my birthday off from work. I'm not sure what Bill has planned for tomorrow, but I'm sure we will have fun.

Kaylee is growing. We bought her a choke collar the day we brought her home, and she has already out grown it.

Hope you enjoy the new pictures.

Love and miss you all,

Bill, Karrie and Kaylee

Last Day of School!

I can't believe that yesterday was my last day of school. It was a day full of emotions. My students and I were excited about next year but sad that we ended the chapter of this school year.

My students helped me move and pack my room up. All of the desks, chairs and bookshelves are in the hall way. Now I just have to finish up the rest of the room and get their files ready for next year. I have a feeling that the files will take most of the day if not all day Monday and the room will take the rest of my time on Tuesday. I may not have to work on Wednesday and Thursday, that would be so nice.

Bill and I are still looking for a church that would fit us. Please pray for us to find the right one. Also pray for Bill's search for a job and my search for a summer job.

God Bless!

New Family Member!

We added a new member to our family today. Her name is Kaylee Grace and she is about 8 weeks old. Her mother is a Jack Russell Terrier and her father has some lab in him. We went to the local animal shelter to see what they had and didn't really see anything that we would want.

Right before we left, a woman from a local animal rescue said that she has some puppies in her car if we would like to see them. By the time we made it over there, there was only one puppy left. These puppies hadn't even made it into the shelter and had been taken care of wonderfully.

Bill and I fell in love right away. She is black with a brown undertone to her. She has white on her tummy, tip of her tail, chin and her back right paw. She is a wonderful little girl and a great new addition to our family.

We miss everyone and hope to see you soon!

Bill, Karrie and Kaylee
