Shawn's First Communion

On Saturday, Shawn made his First Communion. Although you normally make it in second grade, we got a late start so he was catching up in third.

I was so proud of him. He had to attend religious ed 2 nights a week all year to do the prep work.

My scheduled professional photos had to be postponed until Austin was over his pneumonia so we took some pictures around the yard. Of course the Cricket was clinging on in every one.
And speaking of the Cricket...this was her chosen dress for the First Communion. And if the zebra print wasn't wild enough, she decided to add every bracelet in her collection. (I told her that the "Madonna" look ended in the 80's but she just gave me THAT look)
There were limited opportunities to photograph the service but it was quite beautiful. Here are the children singing a special song they prepared for us.
Shawn prepared for this day with his best friend B.
It was hard to see him looking so poised and grown up.
Like two peas in a pod these two.
Such handsome Hethcoat men!
Here we are with the priests from St. Michaels.
We love this boy so much!!
We followed the service with a luncheon at our house. It was great to spend time with the many family and friends who came to celebrate with Shawn.
We even had a gluten filled cake. I think everyone breathed a sigh of relief on that one!

We'll see you all next year when it's Austin's turn...
