Wow! What a great day this has been!
How could it NOT be; LOOK AT THOSE CLOUDS!
It's windy because the clouds are rolling in tonight. Tomorrow it's expected to rain on and off all day! I'm getting ready by amassing reading material, considering baking adventures, and firing up the fireplace (hee hee!)

Church update: I had a meeting with Jessica from our new church this morning. The one remaining concern for me (and Greg) was that our church wouldn't be on board with me using the Chirp Curriculum in the Special Needs classrooms. I thought it might be awkward to promote my own product, but before I could get out any words on the topic, Jessica said, "I'm in. I want your curriculum." I was happily surprised, and I said, "That's great! Now let me explain a few of the reasons WHY you want it!" She got more and more thrilled the more I showed her. At one point, she said, "You know, I have to tell you that [title of their current curriculum] has always frustrated me. There's something missing and it's somehow hectic and too busy. I've wanted something different, and now that I see what you've written, it is exactly what I would have wanted!" She praised how the lessons are appropriate for all ages, and how it's adaptable for different needs. She loved how each lesson builds from week one to week four, she loved how lessons phrase the spiritual truths we all need to know.
Jessica brought up some more (super exciting!) even bigger possibilities, too, but I don't want to share more about that quite yet because I'm still pondering and processing those ideas. I will be praying about them and talking more about them with her as we get things rolling.
Now that the last hurdle is out of the way, I am the Special Needs person officially. I even get to be at the new building walk-through on Sunday in my new capacity. :)
So now I can share and you can check out our new church if you want: Rock Point Church!
