Today was T’s First Communion. Been a long time getting to this point.
The day started out with us going to the Commissary to pick up the cake. A full sheet cake. This was followed by individual and family photos at the church, and then the Mass. See the flickr photostream to the right.
T did get all his prayers memorized (finally!). Of the 15 kids in his CCD class he was one of nine that completed all their prayers. Tough, but he got it done.
The best part of the mass was just after communion when all the kids sang a song for the parish. Not only were us parents so proud, but the church members were so happy and impressed.
After church we did the usual Sunday Brunch at the Navy Club. Took 2nd sister’s son and L’s friends son along with us. They can’t pass up a chance at a Bacon Chipotle Ranch Burger….
