Deutschland here we come!

Joe has done it! He’s realized his dream of securing a teaching job at an international school. It took a long process of applying and interviewing with different schools across the globe, but we received two concrete job offers one week ago from Shanghai, China and Ulm, Germany. After really hashing it out over the weekend, we have decided to accept the offer from the International School of Ulm┬áto teach second grade for the 2013-14 school year.

Now begins the long process of figuring out how to pack, sell our house, and make a new home for our family on a different continent. I’m hoping to use this blog as a means to document our journey and to share with friends what we experience. And maybe in a decade or more our two children will enjoy reading back over the details of this year for which they were too young to even remember.
