Trains, Planes and Automobiles

Well...two out of the three isn't bad, right? For those who didn't know we sold the Bronco back to Dad Coppinger. So we drove it to Mineola on Friday and then rode the train back to Austin on Sunday. There was a slight mix up with the dates on the tickets, but nothing so big that we had to stay in Mineola (unfortunately, since it is one of the best places to be!). In case you ever ride on the train you should know that you have one year to use your ticket. So in the rare instance that you put the wrong date when you are scheduling them....it is okay.

We took some great pictures waiting for the train at the Mineola Transportation Complex. Our train was two hours late, but that gave us time to look through the museum (which doesn't take very long, but if you are curious feel free to visit;)).

Anyway, we still got home at our scheduled time so it wasn't too bad, and riding the train is really fun! Everyone should have one experience on a train. Our weekend in Mineola was quite relaxing, and it is always a blessing to hang out with parents!

**An update on Paul's job hunt**Paul had a phone interview with Intel yesterday which we think is a dead end. It is for a job that Paul really doesn't know how to do. However, he received a phone call from HR at Texas Instruments (TI) and apparently the phone interview he had on Thursday really impressed the interviewer so he will be going in for a second interview. We aren't sure the date yet, but it will be sometime after our trip to Utah. Probably around June 9th or so. We will update when we know more. Please continue to pray for God's guidance and clarity.

Check out the pictures of our trip!

Texas Instruments Interview

Paul has a phone interview with Texas Instruments on Thursday 9am-10am. Please pray that all would go well, and we will see God's plan for us. This job is one that he feels really confident about, and is excited about the opportunity.

Thanks for all of your prayers and support! We love y'all!

Good and not so good news...

So to give a little update to the three people that read this blog we have news on the job hunt and teacher certification.

First of all, I passed both of my certification exams and can begin to look for jobs. I am excited especially since I wasn't in the best condition to test when I took them.

Secondly, the job at Freescale didn't pan out so we are still looking for the place where God wants us. Paul has put in several applications at some different places and so far has been contacted for phone interviews from Intel and another group in Freescale. He has also applied at Silicon Labs, Samsung, and Texas Instruments. Please keep praying that God's will will be crystal clear to us.
