Center Inauguration!

The Center officially opened Sunday, March 17th, 2013 with a church service for the Center kids and their parents, and enrollment for classes.  David Quiroga (and his family) worked like crazy to make it possible, taking care of the last minute details, fixing bathrooms and painting window frames.

A fair amount of parents came to the church service, which was encouraging to see their interest in the spiritual side of The Center.

Then we went outside and each kid was given a helium balloon.  We prayed over The Center and then everyone let go of their balloons at the same time.

We enrolled kids 1st grade thru 4th grade, almost filling to capacity 1 class of each grade and 2 3rd grades.

Parents were excited that classes were starting up again, and even though the kids tried to disguise it, they were excited, too.
