Then Meg was baptized in the afternoon. This was such a sweet service. Our good friend, David, is Meg's godfather and Dave's brother happens to be a priest. So Father Dennis drove in from Memphis to baptize Meg, which was really neat to have him standing there with his brother, all of us promising to reject Satan and help raise Meg in the faith we all share. My other dear friend, Amie, is Meg's godmother, which just rounds out our family and commitment so sweetly. Afterward, Brian and I splurged and took everyone out to eat at Bucca di Beppo (Italian) and it was alot of fun. Dennis did an amazing job with the ceremony and included all the kids in the service. He had everyone participating, asking questions about water and Bible stories and he let all the kids smell the chrism oil that he anointed Meg with. It was sweet.
Today is the first day of 4th and 2nd grades for my older boys. They were both very very excited about going to school this morning. They like school, for the most part. But it broke my heart because when Liam got on the bus, Connor SOBBED!!!! He did not like seeing his brother head off to school without him. He said he wished he could go to Kindergarten. I could have sent him this year, and part of me wishes I had sent him. But on the other hand, I really think I'll be glad when he doesn't leave for college at 17. I will have an extra year with him at home when he is older, but today was hard on him.
Here are some photos from the weekend... sorry so random, but I am determined to get my house back in order today and start this week off on the right foot. It looks like a bomb went off in here! :)
