Our house looks like a funeral parlor. We received so many flowers this past week that we are literally running out of room for them.
My body is rebelling. My muscles are all tensed up, stiff neck, sore back, and no matter what time I get to bed I still feel exhausted. Four out of the six of us have sore throats, and I really just think our bodies are trying to come down from being busy for so long. We are in recovery.
We are recovering from our crazy, busy, fantastic, and amazing weekend. Not only did we have the musical on Thursday and Friday, complete with a surprise visit from my best friend from Oklahoma and subsequent staying up
far too late, we also had some other pretty special events happen as well.
This weekend Ben received his very First Holy Communion.
Ben couldn't stop smiling all day. He said he felt so much different after receiving his First Communion. And now he can't wait to receive his 2nd, and 3rd, and 4th, and 400th! And that is what it's all about.
Ben received some very beautiful gifts and gorged himself on cake and ice cream. Before we knew it we had to kick everyone out so that we could get to our next special event. Grace's first ballet recital.
Grace was in tap and ballet this year so she was in a couple of different dances. The tap was a little iffy but the girl is a natural at ballet. It was pretty fun to watch. The way she holds her frame and moves through the positions is pretty impressive.
