More Good News

As some of you may know Ben's job is a temporary position that ends in June. We have been hoping since his initial hire that this would turn into something more permanent, but it's been up in the air for awhile. It seemed like we were on the verge of hearing good news a few times, but nothing concrete ever materialized. Last week Ben interviewed for two positions, he said he had a 99% chance of getting one and a 1% chance of getting the other, so this equaled a 100% chance of getting a job. Well today he got the good news, and he has a job! He'll be working in the Public Works Department for the City of Hillsboro. The nice thing for us is that his employer isn't changing so our insurance (very important at this stage in the game) and his vacation time won't change at all. We're hoping for a very seamless transition.
We want to say thank you to everyone for all of your prayers and support.
We feel especially blessed in these economic times to have employment.

Yay a girl! I'm not sure what that is... but I think it involves pink and bows and ruffles. Sounds pretty fun! Congratulations on the job, Ben. That's a huge relief. You guys deserve all these wonderful blessings and more!
