We've been in Wichita for a week and two days now and it's going well. Our home feels homey. We are really enjoying our housemates, Lauren and Daniel, as well as our across the street neighbors, Kenzie and Cora, and many of the other family and friends here in Wichita. We are on the job search and feeling somewhat positive. I had a job interview on Friday for a paraeducator position at a dual language elementary school, which went quite well. We've also both applied for jobs at the YMCA. We're trusting that God will provide some good work for us before too long. Josh is starting to make a thesis-work-time schedule. We're both training for a half-marathon in October, so we've been enjoying running along the Arkansas River. In the past week we've been fixing up our room and bathroom a bit. Lauren and Daniel's house had a lot of work to be done when they bought it, but they did a lot of the work before we even arrived. Willis put in new windows in our room and various other awesome people painted, put in a toilet and got carpet installed. We are pretty thankful for all the hard work that went into our part of the house. Besides the attic, our room is the only room upstairs. We really love it! Here are some pictures of the progress we've made this week.
Both of our desks came from Meme and Willis' house. They graciously gave Josh his desk and my craft table was given to them, but they were hoping to give away to anyone in need. My table has a leaf that flips up when I want more space for projects and flips down to keep our room neat and tidy. Josh really likes studying at home, so it's great that he has his own desk to work at.

It's been a good week here and we're excited to see what else is in store for us in Wichita!
