Richard applied for an English teaching position at one of the local high schools and for the head cross country coach there too. He is waiting to hear back about the teaching position, but was offered the coaching one! He is very excited to start coaching again and getting involved in running in our community! It will be hard to have him gone again, but I am very excited for him and proud of him. I think he will be an excellent addition to the team. My littlest sister Laura ran last year so most of the kids will at least recognize him from the many meets we were able to go to and support her.
For those of you who don't know, he will be coaching at the high school I attended. He attended the OTHER school and I just might enjoy seeing him in apparel from my alma matter more than anything else!
I am very proud of him and looking forward to seeing how God will use this opportunity. We are praying for His will for the teaching job as well. It all seems a little surreal and too good to be true. We also know that if Richard doesn't get the teaching job, God has something in store and we will continue to wait.
I guess our boys will be able to grow up cheering on the "Red River Roughriders" after all!
