Say Geronimo is my current favorite song, and it feels like this busy season of life right now. We've got lots going on (it's a May thing, right?) and we're jumping in and having fun! Bombs away!
First up is Maggie the star! She was in a Disney Musical at her school, and it was so wonderful! I can't believe how much talent these kids have - singing, dancing, acting - just wow.
She totally loves being on stage and when it was over said now she didn't know what she would do with her time. So dramatic, that one. Pun intended.
|I said "Strike a pose" and this is what I got.|
She was a "snowflake" in Frozen...
Her best buddy, Robby was the only boy in the musical and totally rocked out as Lightening McQueen.
Even the principal got in on the act, so fun!
Maggie was a "wild animal" in the Lion King...
A "Singing in the Rain" dancer...
An "orphan girl" in Annie...
And a "High School Musical" dancer...
The show was over 2 hours long on both Friday and Saturday nights, but so entertaining!
Next up is Andrew and the 5k race he ran on Sunday morning.
Phil and Eamon ran it too, and Eamon got a personal record of 27:36 (Phil ran with him).
But Andrew ran ahead and placed 2nd in his age group with a time of 22:05. I can't even handle the speed!! His nemesis, Harry, beat him in this race but told Andrew that if he would have trained, he could have won. It's nice to have a sweet nemesis :)
And then after all the racing was over, it was time for Eamon's First Communion!!!
|We had a Sacrament Shindig after Mass, celebrating Eamon & Tommy's 1st Communion and Meg's upcoming Confirmation.|
|Eamon & Tommy|
|This kid has a special calling, methinks.|
JP and Andrew served the Mass, so it was extra special, and I may have cried a few times. I can't help it!
Monsignor posed with Eamon and then with his altar servers...two present servers and one future server!
|Gammy & Grandpa|
|The three amigos - Tommy, Ryan, and Eamon. All cousins born within 4 months of each other.|
|Eamon with his godparents, Uncle Adam & Aunt Holly|
What a busy and fun weekend! Unfortunately, I was a little dehydrated/low blood sugar after the Mass and missed the party, but I hear it was off the hook ;) Eamon came home with lots of gifts and money and was just so joyful at receiving Our Lord. I wish we all felt that way every time we receive!
