Good News!

I am excited to say that I accepted a job today!! (For those I haven't talked with, I was looking for something part-time, but with 25 or so hours at least, that I could do with Joey). The Lord really answered these prayers and provided a great child-care opportunity for me! 4 days a week for 6 hours a day (and then in a few weeks, 7 hours a day) I'll be watching a 3 1/2 y-o boy in Oakland. It's a bit of a commute for now, but once we move, it should be very close. We had an interview Tuesday, and a trial day today (more for both boys) and everyone had a great time! I look forward to sharing more about this job, but I have to head to bed so I can be all ready to start...tomorrow!

The cool part is that it is from about noon until 6, so I still have my mornings at home! :-)

Thank you so much for your prayers. It is hugely expensive for us to even breathe the air here, and this will help considerably. Saturday I think we may go out and get Joey's next carseat!! :-)

What a blessing for you guys! I'm doing the same thing these days. It's a great little Day Job for Moms who don't want to work away from home. We sort of "piggyback" on someone else's job by taking a cut of their earnings for watching their kids while they work. It's like 2 for 1--AND you get to stay at home!! (or, do you?)

I'd be very interested in hearing how it goes for you....keep posting about the new child in your lives. :)
