No more Little Bill
Really, we haven't called Bill little in a long time. But surely this weekend is a milestone. Bill recieved First Holy Communion on Saturday. Grandma and Grandpa were there, along with Aunt Teresa and Aunt Michele. He enjoyed all the fuss and the solemnity of the occasion too.
In particular, there was a boy seated next to him with a short mohawk. This bothered Bill. A lot. I guess he didn't think this hair style was befitting the occasion. So he spent some time motioning to the other boy to "flat his hair." (I was hoping the mom behind both of them would intervene, but no luck.) Eventually, Bill re-focused on the altar and forgot about the hair cut!
My favorite part of this Sacrament (and every Sacrament of Initiation) is the opportunity to renew our Baptismal Vows. So proud to renew my vows, and hear Bill affirm his too.
Second favorite part would have to be the little girls all in white. How beautiful. How exciting! Bill looked handsome, but girls get all the froo-froo on this day. Even one of Bills classmates, a staunch short-hair-cut little girl let her hair grow out for the occasion!
