A New Chapter

We have known for a while that Atlanta would not always be our home. 5 years ago this was just a dream we had, but now we are facing the beginning of a new chapter in our life.

Mat took a job with Disney on Friday evening. In a few short weeks, our family will be moving to Orlando, Florida. Mat will be the "Engineer in Charge" at ESPN's Wide World of Sports. It's an amazing opportunity - an opportunity of a lifetime, in fact. It's not every day that you're offered 'nearly' an executive level job at Disney at the young age of 32!!! I know Mat's a genius, but I never dreamed this would happen so soon.

We are all in a state of shock right now. It's becoming more real with every passing moment. There are lots of questions right now like:

Will we be able to sell our house in the horrible economy? (which it's a wonderful little 4 bedroom/2.5 bath house situated quaintly at the back of a neighborhood on a little cul-du-sac lot in THE BEST school district (Mulberry Elem) around!...and we have pretty wonderful neighbors too!
Where will Andrew go to kindergarten?
Which area should we live in? Where do we even begin to look?

One thing I'm most convinced of is that God orchestrated this entire thing. He flung the doors open wide for this opportunity, and he will provide for us...including a place to live & a school for my precious son.

I'd love to hear feedback from any of you familiar with the Orlando area. We are relying on our friends to help us "learn" about Orlando - and especially to help us answer some of the questions we have about where to live. We will likely rent until our house in Dacula sells.

In the meantime, please keep our little family in your prayers. It's easy to say, we understand God is in control of the situation, but it's a little more difficult to FEEL it in our hearts!
