The more I see how quickly the summer has passed, the more I think about the new school year beginning.  

I just assumed because I was told at the end of my summer school assignment of budget cuts, and no ability to make promises for placement, I would begin the school year without an assignment for the first several weeks and then  calling into my job each day to see what substitute assignment available for that day, and continue to do that until something long term opened up. Doing that can be nerve wracking because I leave the  house a different time everyday, and come home a different time everyday.  Unless of course I work at the same school several days in a row.

Calling in every morning means that I have to be up and ready to leave out the door at 6:15am.  That also means I have to have things organized so that the little people are set for the day and that the morning has minimal interruptions. (Not an easy task with 4 kids).

But then it happened. Last night after getting home from a day filled with  driving from one end of the city and back several times, I checked the mail.  The first thing I noticed was a white envelope with a bright orange logo on it and I knew immediately, my days of calling in to find out where I would go  for the school day were over!

After telling Cookie I got the letter, I opened it up quickly as I stood in the driveway.  I had been hoping  praying  for a long term assignment for the upcoming school year for quite a while  and that is exactly what I got !   The letter extended an invitation to me to attend orientation  at the end of the month-breakfast included.

I don't know exactly what school I will be in  but I know I will be in my local district and  not some town 30 minutes away (Just saying).  Needless to say,  I am extremely excited  to be starting this new adventure. I'm so excited that God answers prayer.  I'm grateful to God for his continued faithfulness in my own little corner of the world.

"Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place". 2 Corinthians 2:14
