As if passing his boards was not enough....
Today, Matt was just offered a job in Minnetonka, at the Hennepin County Home School (Take note, that this offer is from the one and only interview he has been to so far) He has accepted the position, and will be a Juvenile Corrections Officer.

He will be working with juveniles (ages 12 -20), who have been court ordered to this residential treatment program. They have 2 separate treatment programs for males and females, a program for juvenile sex offenders and a Transitional Living Program. He will be starting on April 12, so things are definitely moving in the right direction... Stay tuned :)

**Matt has added a few letters to his name now**

We are very aware of the fact, that we have not done so well at keeping this blog up to date, which is very unfortunate:( We hope to change that now, and start updating everyone again.

I figured their is no better time than now, to get our blog up and running again. I am very excited to inform everyone (or at least everyone that has not heard from Matt yet :) ), that as of approximately 1 PM today, Matt passed his boards exam, and has officially been licensed as a Social Worker. He graduated this last December with his Bachelors in Social Work, and since then, has been focusing on taking his boards in order to be licensed, which became his reality today. We are both excited to have that be over and done with, expecially Matt himself. When I asked him how it felt, he said, "Im so excited, I dont even know North from South right now." LOL. I remember all too well that feeling.

Now with having his license, it opens doors to many opportunities within the field. It will be exciting to see where this takes him next, and where he will officially begin his career.

But for today, I just wanted to acknowledge this huge accomplishment. He deserves a lot of recognition.... Not everyone passes their boards the first time through. Some have to go through the testing multiple times, so CONGRATULATIONS MATTHEW!!!!!!!! To be more specific....
