Decisions, decisions!

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.

That is a big decision! I think if it were up to me I'd choose the one closest to family and furthest from the arctic circle. :) You'll do great wherever you end up!

Ooh, I'm so excited to see where you guys end up! I love hearing about your kids and your adventures. By the way, those baby jeans on Elodie are super cute. Of course, she'd be cute in a potato sack, so that's not saying much. Miss you!

How fortunate to have several job offers to consider at a time like this! I'm eager to hear your decision!

I am sure you have thought of family, church and professional opportunity as related to living in one area for the rest of your lives.

Wyoming, Montana, and Alaska. I see a theme here. Can't wait to hear about your visits and decisions!
