For those of you who may not know, Dan and I moved to Florida 2 months ago, for a job he got as a youth pastor at a wonderful church in Jacksonville called First Coast Christian Center.
For me, this meant that I was back on the job hunt. I am very blessed, because I found two great jobs right away. The first, is teaching ballet and jazz ballet to 3-4 and 5-7 year olds. This is SO much fun, and I'm really enjoying the fact that I've found my way back to my childhood love like this.
My second, and "real" job is as a K4 VPK teacher. I work at a wonderful Christian Private school, called Seacoast Christian Academy. (The VPK program is public though.) This position incorporates EVERYTHING that I love to do.
But first, let's back up to the move.
We arrived on August 5th, after a two day trip in a moving van, with Bella sitting between Dan and I in the front seat.
|Shhh... we gave her baby Benadril so she would sleep for most of the trip- she was the best behaved dog in the world!|
We moved into our apartment, which we love very much. There's a lake on the property, around which we take Bella for a walk every day. Even though we live on a busy streat, our apartment building is so far back, we can't even hear street noise, which is great! (I strongly dislike my itty-bitty kitchen, in which Dan and I bump butts while we're cooking, but hey!)
Best part is- we're 20 minutes away from the beach. At first, Bella hated the beach, but she's really become quite the beach dog!
|This was Bella's first time with sand and water (besides baths). She wasn't quite sure what to think...|
|Dan is so happy to be so close to the beach! He could go every day! And that first week- we nearly did!|
|I really love this picture of Bella and I. We're loving the beach life!|
|My little beach baby.|
|On a date that ended with a walk on the beach - not too shabby!|
So, this is our new life. A new church family, new jobs, our pet baby (who we love and spoil too much), a new apartment and the beach.
