I had to quit my job teaching. :( As a teacher it's always tough to leave your students, but I feel like I abandoned them since it's so close to the beginning of the year. As far as I know, the administration still hasn't filled my position and my students have been acting out for the subs. :( So far Washington won't let me apply for a teaching credential because I don't have a permanent address. Once we move into the apartment, I can finish the application and get fingerprinted. I am not sure about my teaching prospects up here-there IS a population of Russian immigrants but not a lot of ELLs in the schools. Also it's pretty rural-Colville has 4,000 people and Kettle Falls (where we'll probably buy the homestead) has about 1,000. I have heard from 2 people that the Spanish teacher may be retiring at the end of the year. If I can't get a permanent job, I can always sub and work hard at being self-sufficient on the homestead.

In the meantime, I have been sewing up a storm! Before the move I made a few dresses and right now I have been making baby pajamas (so many friends having babies) and I am sewing a dress for the 9-year old daughter of a good friend. Most of our belongings are in storage, but I kept out the sewing machine and some notions. I will let you know as soon as we get our homestead and let you know about the progress.
