Confirmaton Day

O.K. here we go again. My second attempt to blog about Kates Confirmation. I was to frustrated with the first attempt this morning because I couldn't get the photos how I wanted them. So I scraped the whole thing. So here goes. It was a beautiful day. I know that Kate was very nervous but it didn't show right away. She was very excited before the service. I was very nervous for her. She had a lot to remember. The first photo was before the confimation. There were three confirmands and Kate went second. The first girl was very quiet spoken but did very well. When it was Kates turn I noticed that she wasn't as resonant as she was at rehursal! She only forgot a couple of things and pastor helped her out along the way. He's very good at that. Anyway I couldn't take the pictures during the service because I was crying to much. I had to give my camera to my husband who admitted that he didn't know what he was doing. So some of the pictures are a little dark! I know I couldn't have gotten up there like she did in front of the whole congregation,we were feeling very proud! Baby Jack didn't seem very excited about the whole thing. I think he found it all quiet boring! I think we were all glad that he fell asleep in the beginning of the service. He woke up at the very end. Our grandaughter Sarah was exceptionally good through the whole service as well. I was so proud of them both. Kate and the other two confirmands were first to go up for communion. Kate said she didn't like the wine! After the service was done they all lined up at the back of the church with pastor. As the congregation all passed by shaking hands and congratulating them, you could see the pride in thier faces! Afterwards my family and a couple of our members came back to the house and we had lunch and cake. What a beautiful day it was. I can't wait for Good Friday when Kate came actually take communion with me.
