The Interview

We had our interview last with the human resource brother. If you remember from a previous post, that's pretty much the last step for us until we find out about the job. I thought you'd all be waiting in suspense to hear how it went. Well ... ok ... maybe not, but hopefully you're at least interested.

So, there's no way of knowing if it "went well" because we were pretty much just talking. Brother Ringer (I think?) asked us both 3 main questions. He told us there was no right or wrong answers, which is true because they were all soul searching questions. And there was a lot of searching :) The questions were, approximately: 1) What is your biggest accomplishment, 2) what do you do best, 3) and what is you biggest goal in life? Why don't you think for minute how you would answer those questions?? There are just way too many directions you could go, so which do you choose?? Well, I'm not really going to tell you our answers. Lame, I know. But, I will tell you that I got to answer all of them first ... I was secretly hoping that Preston would go first and inspire some great insight in me, but unfortunately it didn't work out quite like that. I think that we both had good answers though. That's all you need to know.

Besides the 3 questions, he just talked to us about where our family lives, if we would be willing to live in Idaho, Utah or Arizona (the three main places) and if we preferred rural or urban places. So, we've put our two cents in now and we just have to wait and see if we get a job offer or not. The only thing that gave us any idea of what he was thinking about us was when he told us a couple of times that we would be a great addition because we're very talented (Preston with his singing and piano and me with my singing and harp). Although, the hiring freeze really makes it difficult to know. Just keep praying for us and we'll see what happens. Whatever direction our life takes, at least we'll be together, right?

Baby Ka

Liz, Preston and I got to go see Ka's little baby about a week ago. Liz wanted to call her "baby Ka" instead of Chloe ... thus the title. Anyway, she was so little!! And SO cute! I just had to share the pictures because I love little babies and Chloe is one cute baby!

Next Step ... Job?

So, Preston found out on Friday that we're going to have someone from the human resources come over to our house and interview us on Wednesday night. Scary! They come over to see your home and meet us as a family. This is the last step before getting offered a job through CES!! So, wish us luck :) Of course, we still won't find out if there's a job opening for Preston until April or May, but it's still nice to know that we've made it this far! Unfortunately, we can't expect too much because we found out last Tuesday that there is a hiring freeze so they don't know how many openings there are going to be. The way they put it was that there is a freeze, but there WILL be some thawings .... There definitely won't be as many as usual, but there is hope. And we're hoping!
