Moving

Okay so we're finally planning on moving to Oregon in July of this year. We have no other plans other then that and most people we've talked to think we're crazy for not having any other plans. But how are we supposed to plan? There's honestly not much we can do until we're really there. And to be quite honest I'm terrified. Actually at the moment I'm so terrified I don't think I want to go anymore. I was just surfing on gooogle.com to see if I could find any information about teaching at a Christian school up there in Portland like I do here. Come to find out, thus far, I'm going to need my BA and/or MA in Education some how, plus some other Certs I don't have and have no clue what they are or where to get them. I totally LOVE that the schools up in Oregon seem to be so much stricter about that kinna stuff so the schools themselves end up being better right?! But ... then there's little 'ol me. I have nothing. Well, that's a lie. I have a BA in Deaf Culture Studies and right now that's useless. Actually I have no idea when that will be useful. It has to be someday, or else I'm really not sure why I picked that and felt as though God wanted me to do it. /sigh Then there's the little problem that I have only passed the CSETs here in California. I Don't think that means anything anywhere else. And I'll only have 1 year of teaching under my belt .... I'm terrified. And I don't think I can handle moving. I have no diea what we're going to do .... or how .... or ..... or..... oh man. I don't think I can handle another panic attack.

I'm going to miss you! You're my local connection to my past - true we don't get to spend all that much time together, but it's been fun to see you every few months! We'll definitely need to get together another few times before you go back. Do you think the school where you got your degree would know of any potential job leads in Oregon?

Breathe! You're forgetting a couple of things.... You have a family that loves you up here that is willing to help you get on your feet. You can always go back to school with the help of some financial aide, plus maybe working part time at a Barnes and Noble or something (I recommend a small one with NO coffee shop that closes at 10pm). It is worth being a little scared and not knowing what's going to happen- trust me- Oregon is so much better and you will not regret the move!!! Love you!! (I'm going to start counting down the months.... 6 months and counting.)
Love you sis!

Okay don't know if you will read this or not but Multnomah has a Masters in Teaching that you can get in one year I think it is. We are also looking for an internal web designer so maybe ???

With "Not the Mama" around, how can you loose? One step at a time, Grasshopper. Me thinks you forget the Power of the One we love from Above. With God, all things are possible. Love you and looking forward to having you closer, The Dinosaur in your life (Dad).
