Today is a very exciting day. We have spent most of the day getting our new rental space ready to have church tomorrow. We will be meeting as a small core group of about 30 people including kids and adults until maybe Easter (while we figure lots of things out). I feel so blessed to be a part of such an amazing work of God. Today just makes everything seem very real. What we have been thinking about for months is becoming a reality. So we all cleaned with great joy today despite the spiders and unknown sticky substances on the floors and walls. Our building is on the corner of Royal and Main street downtown. A church in Missouri has donated a lot of furniture that will come next week (kids tables, book shelves, couch, desks, stove, refridgerator, folding chairs, etc.). And someone has even been generous enough to pay for the UHaul to get the stuff here. How very amazing and exciting!

The smith women were in much need of new haircuts. We were very shaggy and had many split ends. So we (me, Parker and Chloe) all headed over to South of New York and Anna gave us great cuts. Here is a picture of Parker and Chloe. Their cuts are adorable, and I really like mine too.

Lilly has been waiting for this day. She has been talking about it for a few weeks. She had lots of fun today with her four teachers, her lunchbox and her backpack. She is so very big . . . and so very sweet!
In other news. . . Parker is losing teeth left and right. Finally, though, she has lost one in which the grown up tooth hasn't already grown in. She also looks very big with a missing front tooth.
