The Year of the Sacraments

So, Paige is in Grade Two this year at the Catholic School she attends. And with that, comes the honor of receiving the sacraments of Reconciliation, Confirmation, and First Communion.

This will be a series of entries about her experiences with these great moments in her life.

Paige did her First Reconciliation in November. Well...sort of. Its kind of hard to confess to a whole lot when your vocabulary consists of "Right There" "All Done" "Mama" "Dada" "DiDi" "Ball" and "No."

The good thing is, when your vocabulary is that limited, you don't really have a lot of white lies to confess to. And you don't have to worry about calling anyone a bad name, or hurting their feelings.

So, Paige was the most chillin' of the Grade Two kids on that fateful night when they stepped up onto the altar to sit next to Father Maloney in his giant chair, and tell all. And even if he decided to make her recite a few Hail Marys, he had already quickly forgiven her when she marched right up there, put her arms around his neck, rubbed his balding head, and said, "awwwwwwwwww....." to him before he said a word.

So many people ponder about the things you can't do, my little one...but not too many people can say they love as sweetly and totally as you do.

Just LOVE her! AWWWWWW, I want to meet her in real life. I feel like I have. Isn't that funny to love someone whom you've never touched? :)
