It's only been one week??


One week down, and the Wash for Life is off to a good start. The first couple of days involved a lot of furniture rearranging as the family room transformed into an HQ. We were able to pick up two chairs, a whiteboard, and a cork board for under $25 - not bad at all! A friend also donated another computer; so all in all, the office is in good shape.

Mostly we've been following up on leads, contacting people and organizations that we hope will be able to help us. The response so far has been very positive. The Holy Spirit seems to be moving people to get almost excited about this project as we are! We're looking forward to the not-distant time when we can start actually signing people up to hold car washes.

The other night Jonathan gave us a night time tour of the Memorials in DC. Living in the Capital is a great experience, and we want to make the most of it. This summer will be a lot of work, but we're also looking forward to it being a lot of fun! A big part of that is thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Tonkowich, who have been wonderful and generous in hosting us, and in their continual enthusiasm and support.

The rest of this week will be slower, as Jonathan leaves for a wedding in California, and the rest of us have a chance to take care of personal business. Ingrid arrived last night (hooray!), and Hillary and Henry will come in next week.

Happy Memorial Day!
