Over the weekend V & K celebrated their first holy communion. They’ve worked hard every Sunday; waking at 7:45 to get to church by 8:30 ( sometimes 9) but barely missing any class ever.
They made new friends learned all about the saints and penance, in such a mature way. There was never a question of fear or doubt, just gaining faith in the religion and within themselves.
Somehow a smart person within the arch diocese figured that 7/8 is the mature age to speak about religion, life , living and death outside of the home and I personally appreciate that – thank you!
I try to cover all subject possible with the kiddos but if our village is responsible and experienced at it, I will allow the guidance.
To prepare for this big day V & K visited our friends over at the Country Mouse boutique in (Forest Avenue)Staten Island, N.Y. for their one of a kind, designed dresses. We enjoyed a day of fitting in fun in the store to finally pin point out the crystals, lace and perfect amount of tulle for their dresses.
The girls had rehearsed numerous ones daily, with and without teaching Bash how to hold his hands in prayer and walk down the aisle. They were ready!
The morning started off great, the rain never showed its face – sunshine all day!
This sweet video shows just how much they’ve enjoyed this process.
We couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
Through it all they were able to enjoy this experience together and embrace this #TwinDollicious bond!
