Well folks....the news is out!

Casey and I will officially be putting our house on the market on SUNDAY and will be making a big move to our hometown of Tyler, Texas!

It has been a CRAZY two weeks! We have really learned how to pray for wisdom in all situations and how to put our lives/plans in God's hands!

To make a REALLY long story a little bit shorter...this is what has happened in our lives :
1. Casey and his boss/BFF decided to get with another friend and start a commercial roofing company - they had been planning all of this out since November!
2. They put in their two-weeks notices and a few days later saw a bunch of red flags with this new company....
3. They went back to their original job and asked for them back....because, remember, they had put in their notices!
4. The next day, he found an opening at a different branch/office for his company- in Shreveport....and got an interview 2 days later.
5. Interviewed and got the J-O-B with the ability to move to our hometown and work from there!

I haven't really been able to say anything until now....only because we were waiting on him to sign the paperwork and make it official! We have really been wanting to move home for a while...but jut never had a good opportunity. This opportunity has just been pretty much handed over to us. Now we are just trying to get our house in order and ready to go up on the market. We are praying that it sells really quickly so that we can purchase a new one in Tyler!

Regardless if it sells soon or not, I will be staying in Fort Worth to finish out the school year with my fourth graders! I am going to be sad to be leaving my wonderful school but I am excited for what is to come! I am also praying that I will be able to quickly find another teaching job!

So there you have it...a quick little update, just as I promised in my previous post! Please be praying for us and we are trying to sell our house and trying to get everything in order! Also...for me to be able to find a great new job!

If you know anyone looking for a house in Fort Worth...send them our way!!!!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!!! I am going to be exhausted from all of this crazy house updating!! :)
