Jonah and I stopped by the church to see Dan this afternoon. We had not been in the sanctuary in a while so we went in for a tour. We have been out of the building for 3 months now and have made TONS of progress. It is exciting to see what all has been done thus far. Our estimated move in date is is May 19th. We can't wait!!!
I think people are most excited about the new ramp seating that will connect the main floor to the balcony. It will really make the sanctuary feel more intimate.
The sound people are really excited about the new sound booth. Jonah checked it out and it got his stamp of approval.
He really, really wanted to play in the sheet rock mud. As you can tell from the look on Dan's face, we did not think this was a good idea.
The window Jonah is looking out of used to overlook grass. Now, you can see how it looks into the new addition. It is going to be a beautiful foyer. But, you won't be able to see the foyer because that window will actually become a doorway into a balcony bathroom.
If only you could have been with us for the next few pictures. You can kind of see that I caught Jonah mid-fall in the first image. He was trying to push the door open but didn't realize there was no glass where the glass used to be. He fell right through the opening. (It was really funny to see the surprise on his face but not funny that it did actually hurt him!!)
He immediately wanted his mommy. It broke my heart that he was so upset. I really think it was more embarrassment than actual hurt. We made sure to "tell dat door NO-NO!!!"
The big curved windows on each side will be filled with stained glass from our old sanctuary. It is going to be so beautiful. I can't wait to see the finished product.
Jonah loves going to the church to see what is going on inside during this project. It is fun to see the progress and experience it all through his eyes.
