Here we come...

Things are falling in to place for our family to make the move to Portland in mid August. I was offered 2 teaching positions and ended up choosing the one I felt was the best fit for us. I will be teaching 8th grade Language Arts in North Clackamas. We hope to live in the Southeast end of Portland. I was totally amazed that I went from having no serious job prospects and was thinking that maybe I wouldn't teach when we moved to having 2 job offers. I'm really looking forward to teaching junior high (the school I am at is still a junior high, but will split into two middle schools in 2009). The school was awesome and they are doing some really forward thinking things so I am excited to be a part of that.
I will be flying up to Portland the end of this month with my mom and Amalea to sign my contract and do some house hunting. Jim will be in Peru with some of his students so we are going to try our best to find a home we like.
More and more I feel so confirmed in this decision to move and I can honestly say that even though I am a little scared I am excited more than anything else. So, Portland Oregon...here we come...
