Getting Ready

Kate looked absolutely beautiful for her First Communion. She wore a dress that Grandma Kasey had bought her for her birthday last year from a bridal store, she had great shoes handed down from Katerina and her veil was handmade by Nannies friend SusieDavis (yes, Nannie says it as one word). It was all perfect and she loved being dressed up so fancy.

She sat patiently in Church, she answered the questions of Father Don, and sang her song “Yes, My Lord…”. I looked over at her on the end of the pew and was just so proud of her. Talk about being in love with your kid – I think she’s awesome. 🙂

Anyway, Kate came back from Communion and said “I don’t like the bread”. I remember thinking EXACTLY the same thing! I couldn’t understand why it didn’t taste any better. I smiled and shared with her that I didn’t like it at first either.

First Communion

Reilly made his first Communion on May 14. He was pretty excited to have so many folks from the family with him on this special day. The way Saint Patrick’s did it was to split up all the kids and it ran for several weeks during a regular mass. Reilly was one of eight kids. About 1/2 way through the Mass he turned to me and said “I’m scared”. I said, “of what?” “I don’t want to taste the wine.”

Ten minutes later it was over. He had eaten the bread and tasted the wine. He said “that bread isn’t very good, it will take getting used to and the wine is weird.” Well, whether your eight or eighty I think you’d say the same thing after receiving.
