A grown-up job!

Well, okay, I wasn't really looking too hard for a job yet- Chris just finished his first week of school, and I wasn't planning on looking until at least the first of the month, but I went ahead and applied for a position because it was in line with my degree.
I am now employed with TFI Family Services. Kansas has an independent child care system, so my company is contracted by the state to provide child and family welfare services- including mental services. I am very excited because there are many avenues that I could take to grow within the company and they will pay for my Master's degree!
Okay, so the thing that I am most excited about is that I have a SALARY POSITION!!! No more hourly wages! Paid holidays and paid vacation here I come! I also have super-great benefits for around $10.00 a month, life insurance, 401K- wow- I have a real job!
So my official title is 'Care Manager'- don't ask me exactly what I do, because it is a little hazy. I know that I don't deal directly with families and I don't find homes for the children, and I have my own data entry person who enters my cases into the system for me. What ever else there is to do, I think I do that- except filing- there is someone who does that too.

Goin' to Kansas City. Kansas City here we come!

Well, we haven't written in a while. Why? Because we have been working our tails off trying to get our house in shape! Tif has been working inside getting all the boxes unpacked while I have been building a fence (thanks for the help, Dad!). What fun that was. woohoo Anyway, all is going really well here. Tif is studying for the GRE while I am doing my first week assignment (a ton of reading). Callie and Kaikeyi are adjusting but miss all the squirrels. Anyway, tomorrow we are going to KC to have some fun and enjoy it before the "real fun" begins. Anyway, we just wanted to write and update everyone. We will try to have some pictures posted soon. Hope all is well and hope to hear from each of you soon! Love, Chris and Tif
