It's nice to know that they understand what's going on when your children receive a Sacrament. Joey obviously did as his celebration cake read: "Congratulations! You've been drafted."
Later in the month (after she saw all the First Communicant girls in their finery), Claire knew it was time for her to join us at the Table of Plenty. In order to do that, though, she had to make her First Confession. She was well prepared, just nervous.
I didn't get to see her face as she left the confessional as she had asked me to go in with her (I plugged my ears). I've been told she came out glowing. She had a spring in her step and she did the customary heel click after praying her penance prayer.
June will start off on a happy note as Claire receives her First Communion. She is so excited. We bought her cake,
her shoes and her gift today (she wanted a special 1st Communion doll).
So this happy mom is praising God for His Sacraments and for the children who are receiving them with joy.
