Well things are happening on the job search front and we're pretty excited about it all! Aaron got his first job offer last week, in a town called Delta Junction, Alaska. He visited that town a year and a half ago and he really likes it. My favorite thing about that town? It is connected, by roads, to other places! And after a couple of telephone interviews, Aaron was invited for some in person interviews/ site visits. He got more invitations than we could squeeze in, actually. This week, we're leaving to check out two places: a tiny town called Medicine Bow, WY, not too far from my family in Denver (about 3 1/2 hours) and Kotzebue, AK, yes, the one in the Arctic Circle. Aaron convinced me not to knock it 'til I tried it. Culbertson, the little town where Aaron is now doing his final rotation, may have a position for him, but it's up in the air. As much as we are all loving this area, we don't feel like we should just wait around for possibilities and let definite offers pass us by. So when we fly back into Denver, we're going to spend the evening in the temple and hopefully decide where we'll be spending the next few years of our lives! We know the Lord will guide us in the future as He has the past. It'll feel so good to decide and move from the job searching mode into the move planning mode.
