Big News!

I just came back from what I thought was the final interview...and I got the job! Starting on April 26th, I'll be working as an administrator for The Bible League of Canada. So far, the job description is a little intimidating, but I'll have two full weeks for training, so that is a great relief. I'm so honored to be working for an organization that is doing such good and meaningful work all over the world! I think the job will be really challenging and rewarding...

In other news: Since I got the job, we're going on a vacation before I start! We're heading to the West Coast on Wednesday for 12 days! We'd been hoping we could fit this trip in before my new job started, and it looks like it'll be just fine! We'll be flying to Portland, and then making our way up the coast (by train) to Seattle and Vancouver. I'm so excited. Kevin and I haven't been on a vacation since our honeymoon, and we're pretty much bouncing off the walls over here.

We plan to stay a night at the Kennedy School Hotel, which is exactly what it sounds like...a hotel in an old school. We're so excited to stay in what has been called the '#1 Quirkiest Hotel in the US'. We love quirky!

Above: There is a private theater in the basement of the school. So awesome!
Above: Each guest room is a section of the old classrooms, and many have the original chalkboards.

Can you see why we're so excited about staying here?!
