She did it!

Mollie’s had an active job search this summer. She has had numerous interviews and after each one she would tell me the good and bad points of the interview process. In the two schools she really wanted she said she thought she interviewed well, but the positions went to others.

Last Thursday morning she had an interview in the next county. As soon as she got out she called me. “Mom I really want this one – they were all so nice, they really just talked with me instead of asking tricky questions. They were just so friendly.”

I did my mother thing saying that she should have a good chance then and not to worry. So she went on, “But they have a total of thirty people to interview and you know some of them have tons of experience and the interviews are going to go on through Monday.” She headed on to her job and I said a little prayer that they would remember her and offer her the job.

An hour and a half later they called and offered her the job! The three teachers she would be working with along with the principal had conducted the interview and they had all agreed they wanted Mollie and stopped the interviews. She is thrilled and I’m so excited for her.


Mollie was in the eighth grade when I began blogging and now she’s a third grade teacher. The school is about thirty minutes from our house so she can commute as she looks for her own place. I think there are some third graders out there that don’t know how lucky they are about to be.

You must be so proud, Mom. She is a lovely daughter and you and your husband did a wonderful job of raising her and being role models for her. You deserve a pat on the back -- if not a good spanking.

Thank you everyone - you can't read here without knowing how proud I am of my children. They are my greatest joy and two of the nicest people I know! LJ and Collin will be home next month and we'll have the whole family together. My wonderful little children fulfilled my dream that they would grow up to be even more wonderful adults!
