Well since I posted last I have been pretty busy. This past week I have spent endless hours on a tractor playing farm boy. I actually enjoy doing the tractor work it gives me alot of time to think, and to listen to Rush Limbaugh and Shaun Hannity on talk radio. I also went last thursday to Aberdeen for a job inerview. They call me back the next day and offered me the job, so after I talked to Morgan I decided to take the job. I will be teaching biology, basic Anatomy and Physiology, and maybe Zoology. I wasn't really excited on having three preps, but the periods are only 50 minutes long so planning each lesson wont take as long as it did in Blackfoot were the periods were 70 minutes long. I am excited but also a bit nervous.
This coming weekend Morgan and I are heading to Reno. She has a volleyball tourneyment down there and didn't want to drive all by herself, so I get to go along to. I am kinda looking forward to it because I have never been to the Reno, Tahoe area. It should be fun.

Well this past week I have been going to job fairs and sending in applications for teaching positions. I interviewed for a job in Idaho Falls at a Charter School earlier today. At the charter school I would be teaching sixth, seventh, and eight graders. There are two other jobs that maybe promising. One is in Aberdeen, which is about 40 miles from Pocatello, and the other is at Pocatello High School. The Aberdeen job is also at the high school. So far the Aberdeen School District seems to be the most interested of the two high school positions. I would really like to get the Pocatello job because we would not have to move anywhere, and because Morgan has been coaching the volleyball team there for the past couple of years.
The snow has finally all but melted in the valleys. I even did a little bit of fencing last saturday. It was nice to be outside doing physical labor again, after a long cold winter.
