I just thought I’d let you all know how things are going so far.
They were impressed with Jeremy at the interview. They told him that he was better than average* as a perl programmer. He had another interview by phone yesterday, the last one. He told them the minimum pay he’ll need to support a 7 person family in the Chicago area. Now, the waiting game continues.
Pray for us during this time. I’ve been trying to stay calm and I pray about it, but when I think of all the changes that will be made than I get stressed and usually so bad that I end up with a headache. I’m sure Melody remembers how bad my stress headaches can be. She was my college roommate and had to live with me when they were at their worst. I don’t have to worry about school systems and I know that in a place as populated as that, there will be homeschool support groups. What I worry about is a good dance program for Amie and if I’ll be able to find a drama program for James. Are the baseball programs for James’ age going to be so focused on win, win, win or just having fun? Will I be able to find something to put any of the others in? Will we be able to even afford any of this? Amie is on a ballet scholarship here. Her leg muscles are doing wonderful and keep her feet turned out properly now while she walks most of the time. If she relaxes, I still see some pull inward, but not near as bad. I want her to be able to continue her “therapy” which she enjoys so much, plus she is doing so well in it.
Anyway, those are just some of the things I think about. I know God will work things out for us one way or another, but I can’t stop thinking of everything.
* Better than average??? That’s all?? I know he’s a genius, but I guess they couldn’t see it because he was so nervous.
