…and back to Oregon!

We are heading north to Eugene, Oregon. We spent a few days in Oregon last week and we’re able to find a house to rent. This is not an easy task when you have two dogs, need a fenced yard, and want to spend under $1,000/month.
Nonetheless, we found a great place that we are excited about. There is a picture of the home, but it’s now yellow.

While in the area, Laura had an interview with the Superintendent of Eugene Schools, which is a great lead when it comes to obtaining a job in the area. We are keeping our fingers crossed about that contact. On Saturday she took her Orela test which is necessary for all teachers to take to obtain a teaching license. For those familiar with teaching license tests, the Orela is more intense than the CBEST test. The last few months of studying biology, math, art, p.e., physics, dance, and more came down to last Saturday. We will receive the results in July. Brett interviewed and accepted a Graduate Teaching Fellowship as the Peace Corps Recruiter for the University of Oregon. What a relief for the both of us to get this opportunity. This position will be for two years and allow for his tuition to be paid for.

We are moving sometime in the first few days of July. Our new contact information is down below. Our address is effective July 1. The cell numbers are effective now and will be our permanent numbers in Oregon. Our place is a bit bigger than the home in Mineral (we have 3 bedrooms) so please visit if you have a chance.

Related “moving on with life” news, the federal government has finally accepted that Brett’s shoulder blade/capsule injury was caused while serving in Armenia. Hip hip hooray!

Thanks for reading and take care! We’re off to Hawaii for a week. Aloha!
