This may come as a shock to those who know us personally, but we lifelong Southerners are heading west. As in California west. We've been pretty tight-lipped about it all (you know, for fear of jinxing it and then looking foolish) but John applied a few months back for an administrative position at a small private high school in northern California, and after an interview and re-interview he received word just before spring break that he had the job.
I don't see it as being a lifelong move (so we plan on keeping our house) but it will take us out of the Volunteer State for a few years. It was just too good a package to pass up. Of course, Ren is beside herself with joy and John-Heath is full of questions! We've told our closest family members and we have a few others with whom to "officially" relay the news, but I just couldn't not share with you all, my faithful blog readers, our upcoming grand adventure on this most glorious first day of April.
P.S. April Fools!!!
