While Cardinals gathered in Rome for the conclave, my son was gathering his wits for the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
My dear husband even took off the day from work to make it more special and for Jonah to remember this day.
He's ready!! There he goes....
And the choirs of angels sang and his soul rejoiced!
Can't you just see that glow??
We have noon Mass in our little parish on Tuesdays, so we celebrated Jonah's big sacramental step by attending as a family.
Jonah, with his first confessor, our priest Fr. Michael:
If you know my boy, you would know how creative he is. He couldn't let lunch even go by without a commemoration of the sacredness of the day.
A syrup cross on his Eggo.
How else can we keep the celebration going?
Water park with daddy, anyone?
(Insert photos here of big kids with daddy having fun at water park. Without the Momarazzi there to take the photos, they forgot.)
Once everyone was back home again it was time for Jonah's favorite, spaghetti, for supper.
Finish the day off right with a bowl of ice cream.
I'd say we did good and made this a very memorable day for Jonah.
We so love our sacramental life.
A clean soul with a side of ice cream. *Bliss*
