Roommates--Can't live with 'em, Can't live without 'em!

Roommates can be such blessings at times :) I know I have complained about my roommates, especially one in particular. But as of late, things are going great in our apartment. As hard as it is to sometimes get along with 5 other girls, I'm grateful to have roommates who care and are willing to serve! They are truly wonderful!!

I'M GOING TO...........

Some of you know that I have been searching for a nanny position to go work for a year after this semester is over. I had my first interview with a Sean and Beki Clark on Friday! We had a 1 hour and 20 minute phone interview/conversation. They are members of the church and have one little boy. He is 21 months, so almost 2. He's adorable! This is Wesley:
Isn't he adorable!? Beki and Sean called me last night and told me that they would like to offer me the position :) I will be flying to Arizona, probably on the 2nd of January. I am really excited for this opportunity, and frankly quite nervous! It's like I'm gonna be a mommy..without actually being a mom! I have full responsibility over this kid from 8am-6pm! I'm in charge of helping him learn and develop! It's a scary responsibility! However it will be an awesome experience, and a great opportunity to learn more about the care of children.
Sean told me that there are more guys than girls in the area and that I won't have have a shortage of guys asking me on dates. lol. We shall see. Even better they both fully understand that I want to serve a mission at the end of the year, but still offer a bonus if I choose to stay for another year. I am really excited...and I might be needing motherly advice and ideas of things to keep him learning, growing, and entertained! Any input is awesome. He is a very hands on kid, and likes to help bake, learn sign language, press keys on the piano, and other hands on activities!

Other random exciting information:
I got an email from my friend who is on his mission in Norway today! It's the first time I've heard from him since he left! I was SOOO excited, and he is doing wonderful :) I miss Torvald!!
It's been a great start to the week..and Thanksgiving is next week :) (I get my wisdom teeth out a week from today :/ It's only the bottom 2, but I'm going to be awake during the procedure, I'm really scared) So life is wonderful and I'm super excited right now!

Input is welcome!!!
