New Job

I started my new job yesterday. I am not 100% sure of what it is I am doing yet, but I know that I like it. I spent the better part of my morning grading math papers and realized that I really needed to bone up on some of my unused math skills. The morning was gone before I knew it. I worked with a young man in the afternoon on math and literature. He was much more interested in taking breaks to play on the internet, but I kept reminding him that the game would be there after he finished reading with me. :0)
I am waiting to see if I will be working with the kids at home or if I will stay at the school.
I also have Monday's off from now on, so I will be able to pay attention to home things at least one full day.

My heart is heavy for a girl I met yesterday morning. She has such an attitude and doesn't seem to care about anything, least of all school. She is also pregnant with twins due in June. Please keep her in your prayers.

Hi Jill,

So good to hear an update of your job. Praying for you as you meet with those kids--for God to give you "an instructed tongue" (Isaiah 50:4).

They are so blessed to have you!
