I wanted to take a few minutes tonight to give a family update.
First, we will be joining the Pastoral Staff at Northside Church in Texarkana, Texas. We will be the Student Ministries Director. I'll be overseeing all Kid's and Youth Ministries. We will also have a focus on the family (marriage, parenting, etc.). Our official start date is September 1st. I'm really looking forward to working with Pastor Jimmy and Renata. He has been a tremendous friend and mentor to me over the last couple of years.
For the last several months, I've been working in Texarkana at a call center that services home mortgages. We call for documents, payments, etc. for the "Obama Plan." I've learned a lot about the mortgage industry. Last month, they selected me as the "Employee of the Month." It has been awesome working with the people I work with. My last day will be on August 31st.
Sasha is starting school tomorrow. Another year of teaching 3rd Graders. She is also serving as the 3rd Grade Chair. I'm really proud of her. She really made tonight special for the girls. She got them presents for the first day back to school. It is a cool family tradition.
Mady is starting First Grade tomorrow. She is getting so tall. She started Gymnastics last week and loves it. She suprises us with her reading abilities. She loves to organize and clean......definitely takes after her mom. :) She loves going to Northside because she has many friends there.
Mackenzie is in preschool this year. She is a creature of habit. She wakes up every morning and has to sit in the same spot, have a glass of milk and watch the Backyardigans. She is a daredevil. She loves baby dolls.
We are excited for the future. Look for more blogs soon. :)
