Stage One Complete

We just hit send on the first email to our parents and all of our siblings. It is a rather long email about the various goings on of this past couple of weeks. Embedded in one of the longer paragraphs, there is this sentence:
The park and the community center are only a short walk away, so we'll be going there a lot. We're not attending church right now, so we decided to take advantage of the continuing nice weather the next day and walk around the neighborhood a bit.

We can see that my mom is currently online, so she may be reading it now. I don't know how many people are going to notice it, or think much of it. Many of them may just think we have some good temporary reasons that weren't mentioned. I'd be surprised if no one asks about it. I still think it was a good idea to do it this way, because it gets across the very true message that to us it's not a big deal. It hides our apprehension of course, but that's a good thing to hide. If this little tidbit doesn't spark any questions, then stage two will just have to wait. We can be at least a little bit more open now, because technically we have told them that we aren't attending church, so at the very least I hope they're not surprised if we can't tell them all about our new ward here.
