Congrats on buying a home in Arkansas! That's a huge step in your relocation process.

In the meantime, if you have any questions about the Jasper area, I'll do my best to answer.

Thanks Holly. I have your card. I got one when we went by the Cliff House for lunch.

Wow, Wes, that is so exciting. I am happy for you and I am one of those that believes buying is a better bet anyway. Just my opinion. When are you moving?

We are closing on the house in Ark on May 1st. They will do a mail out closing, so we don't have to drive to VB. We will move in around late May since I have to finish my school year down here. The house is well worth paying one month of house payment for it. We are thrilled with the house. Now I just need to Skype my way into a teaching position in either FS or VB.

I am sure you will have no problems getting one.

I don't either. It's just that even hiring is different here than in Ark. We go to the HR and it funnels to the schools. Now, I have to apply on line for each job opening and file the papers each time. Hopefully it will be quick.
