In the middle of the Home Work, I attended Edge Leaders Training for my upcoming work with the Edge Middle School Ministry at church. It was both neat and eye-opening. Certainly there are issues that have been common to all middle-schoolers through time, but there are some big, new issues that were not a "thing" when I was there. For instance: cell phones for texting & sexting and cutting... didn't know about that stuff. All in all, I'm looking forward to working with my sixth-graders, and it's going to be a big commitment.
It looks as though the house that Jenn and I really had our eye on is now off the market. Bummer. It kind of takes some of the motivation to sell away, but we've got to be forward thinking, and we're going to continue to look at what's available, especially in the world of foreclosed homes in the Hudson area. So much of it is out of our control. The LORD led us to our current home, and it was a great buy at the time. We'll see what's in store.
