Mama Wouldn't Have Let Me Do This

David and I have just signed a two-year contract for Theatre teaching positions at the American International School in Kuwait City, Kuwait. WHAT ARE WE DOING?! We've spoken with the important people in our lives and they have been encouraging (except Ximenia who said "Everytime I hear of something in Kuwait, I will think you are dead". We're taking that as a supreme sign of affection.

We have so many details to figure out ranging from what do we do with our dogs (our biggest worry) to how will we gracefully exit Pelican Rapids for two years. This has been something that has been on our List of Things To Do (doesn't everyone have one of these?) for the past 15 years. But it's amazing to think that it's actually going to happen.

The process began with attending the Overseas Job Fair in Waterloo Iowa during Feb 1-3. It was an amazing experience-mostly humbling,. We truly "accidently" ran into Russ McLean, superintendent of AIS in Kuwait and 3 hours later we have a contract in our hands.

I intend to post things as we get our life together, slowly.

Here's hoping all goes well.
