Where is this place?

So, it's final I guess. I received a text from the money maker today telling me that he is indeed going to Alaska. It's not a shock. We have been discussing and praying all weekend about what we should do. For those of you who don't's a recap: Matt's current job has been rumored to end in August. While we can use this company to search among other jobs they have, Matt has tried to gain employment with Alaska for just about two years. He has a friend that has been up there this long. So CH2MHILL has offered him a job up in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska. This requires a six week work and two week off schedule. And nothing ever happens slow with Matt...he leaves on Sunday and will return the first week of August...I think. Why take this job you ask? Because all of these traveling jobs have looked like our help to get out of debt. We are really optimistic that this is going to be "the one". Yes, I'm aware of how much traveling rots. And if our financial situation doesn't improve, it will rot even more. We've given it a year time limit because our boy will be starting school next year and I would prefer things to be "normal" for when that happens. So here's to our goal! Any prayers and support will be graciously accepted:) Till then,
Pin It!

You know you always have our support Meggan and Matt and kids. We figured it was coming so no surprise there but many decisions now to what happens from here I guess. Let us know how we can help okay... Much Love, Mom

Meggan, we have friends in Alaska...seriously. I know it's a big state but let me know where Matt is going to be and I will let them know so he has someone at least that he can turn to if he needs something. They are good people. :)
