Niece's First Communion
Sun, 05-05-2013 - 12:41am

On Saturday I took drove my 10 year old son and 8 year old daughter to my sister's daughter's First Communion at St. Rose of Lima Church in Newtown, CT.  My niece is 3 weeks younger than my daughter and they love playing together, they are both in second grade.

We sat to the side and in the back, and I tried to explain what was happening, but my kids complained that they were bored out of their skulls, but they were mostly quiet.

The priest did mention that the kids had missed a lot of school due to bad weather and other bad things, and I was thinking how sad it will be next year that there will be notably less kids going to their First Communion next year :-(
