Gunnison Update

As we enter into the 13th week of anticipation about the possible move to Colorado, I thought I'd post an update.

Last I posted, Steve's resume was en route to the hiring official in Gunnison, CO. Since then, Steve has had an interview. That was 1-1/2 weeks ago. The interview went very well. He's up against 2 other fellows.

The hiring official said, 1-1/2 weeks ago, that it would likely be 2 more weeks before a decision was announced. References had to be contacted & preliminary background checks needed to be done. Two of Steve's references have called us and said they had very lengthy phone calls with the Supervisor. Good news there!

Well, this Thursday will be the 2 week mark. We are so very hopeful to hear a decision this week. This waiting & waiting has zapped us. We are running on fumes now.

Some very good news, behind the scenes, is that we may have found a family from Minnesota that is interested in buying our hobby farm. It's the location, price, acreage, & house size that they're looking for. The wife is taking a job with the animal hospital in town, I'm not sure what the hubby does. It would be such a blessing to have our property here sell! God is so good.

And check out His handiwork! This is the Powderhorn Wilderness, just a hop skip and a jump from the area we hope to buy land.

Boy, will it ever be good for you to know. Is there a school at Powderhorn or do the kids go into to Gunnison? Or will you homeschool?

Congrats!!!! He got it? How exciting! I tried to give you a call so we could freak out together, but the number I had was as old as the hills! Someone else answered and informed me she'd had that number for 6 months. Oops! Anyway, I'm too excited for you to be sorry yet. Missing you all will come later and you are soooo going to have to blog every chance you get so we can keep up with you! Woohoo!!
