Later in the day we got together with our friends Adam and Kate Vodicka and Brandon and Kelli Dasinger for some 1/3 pound hamburgers. They were huge! We wandered over to see the fireworks shot of by local railroad tycoon RJ Coreman. We were a good distance from the fireworks so we could not hear them well but still had a great view. Though this display is still rather tame compared to the fireworks at our new home (Disney World).
Things are really coming together for our move to Orlando. I interviewed for and was offered a position with the Seminary. I (Brian) will be the Admissions Recruiter at the Florida campus. I am really looking forward to the job. I will get to talk to prospective students who come by the campus interested in pursuing God's call in their lives. I will also be traveling to various conventions, conferences, and Wesley Foundations talking about Asbury. I think this will be a great experience. I really think highly of Asbury, our degrees, faculty, staff, etc. When I do travel it should be in the Florida, Georgia, and Alabama territory primarily. Even better is that Melanie is welcome to accompany me. We are looking forward to some financial stability that will allow Melanie to go after her entertainment opportunities while allowing us to continue to pay off debt and save. More updates on the job as the come.
Melanie has here 2nd Theatre Camp this coming week. She will have the middle and high school kids. Right now she is working though potential scripts for the show on Friday. We hope to be able to come back in the summers to Wilmore to do theatre camps. Its funny because most people go to Florida for summer vacations. We hope to head north. Ha! we are so weird.
So, as of today we have 9 days in Wilmore. We are excited by somewhat sad. Melanie and I realized that Broadhusrt has been our primary residence since we were married (1.5 years). We only lived married in Valdosta for 7 months. Believe it or not we will actually miss our 476 square foot "efficiency" apartment. We are excited about moving into the Ronald McDonald House with a washer/dryer (free) and dishwasher. Broadhusrt has been a great time. We were able to meet some great people and make some great friends in the process. This will certainly be hard to do in Florida. It is hard to match the community feel of a small town. But, next Saturday we pack the Peneske. Then, Monday we will head out. My (Brian) parents will be flying in to help us get to Florida. And so, the caravan goes south again...
Will we ever settle? We sure hope so, one day!
