Exciting News

 Landon came home from school today, picked his daughter up and said "I have exciting news to tell you Capri, Daddy got a job offer with Exxon Mobil!"  Of coarse Capri smiled because she is always  happy to see her Daddy.  Landon got lots of hugs and kisses from me and I made him take a picture to remember that moment.  The moment when we felt so excited we smiled and jumped for joy.  The moment when we felt the investment of almost two years of graduate school and lots of students loans is going to pay off.

The official offer is on its way and we have three weeks to accept it.  Landon had a few interviews with other companies and potential job offers in the "pipeline" but won't hear back from them until around November because the recruitment season just started.  We will be making our decision on faith and prayers, but Exxon was at the top of Landon's list so that makes the decision less difficult.

We celebrated later that night with the Jackson's at Tia Rosa's.  Landon insisted on buying their dinner and for once they let us!  And because we had such a good reason to celebrate, Landon and I went to Chilis afterward to get Landon's favorite dessert- molten lava cake.

Congratulations Landon, you definitely put in the time and hard work.  Your girls are so proud of you!
