The last of our 1st communions

Not sure if that's a happy thing or a sad thing.
I do know that we were very proud of Julia today.

She did a very long reading at the mass today and was a total rock star. She stood on the step stool at the pulpit and read loudly and perfectly to hundreds of people without the slightest bit of anxiety.

Julia is a seriously picky eater, honestly, she has major food/taste/texture issues. It's really bad. Anyway, we were so afraid that she would gag on the host and spit it into her hands and we would have to change churches at the very least, possibly change religion but she did it!

We came home and had a lovely little brunch with immediate family and a few friends and in a little while we're going out for dinner. The 1st Communion girl picks Outback Steakhouse...yum!

Congratulations! We have one year before we hit our first First Communion, and my daughter can't wait. She's been seeing pictures of friends at their First Communions and has been oohing and ahhing over the dresses and veils. "I want to do that! I want to do that!" I keep telling her "It's not just about the dress, ya know" Hmmm .... I'm guessing we'll be having a similar conversation in about 20 years ... :)

I'm 42 and remember my 1st Holy Communion like it was yesterday.... The Communicants sat together, separate from the parents. Well, the host got stuck to the roof of my mouth so I stuck my finger in my mouth to work it loose and my Dad saw me from all the way across the church.... not good!

:c ) ah, memories!
Anyway, your daughter looks adorable, God Bless her!
