Changing jobs ... without moving!

Jason just finished his second week at a new job. He is now a Service Forester for the state of South Dakota! And, the best part? We didn't have to move to a new house, city, state or country to make this happen! Hurray! An added bonus? Jason's new workplace is a mile from our house, so he can ride his bike to work and there is a park nearby that makes it easy for us to meet up as a family for his lunch break. Woo-hoo!

Most of all, we're hoping this position will be a good fit for Jason and his skill set. Although the National Wild Turkey Federation was a good employer and he learned a lot, his position was lacking in what he'd gone back to school to do - Forestry. While there are Forestry jobs across the world, after being here 20 months, the kids and I were just starting to feel settled and have friends, so Jason looked a little locally and came up with nothing. Then he was approached by someone at the State regarding this position and the rest God lined up for us. We are thankful.
