As stated before, Connor is going through Sacramental Preparation classes at church right now so he can do First Reconciliation & First Communion.
Boy, this kid has to be the most motivated kid to receive the Holy Eucharist ever. Every single week he tries to get it. He's going through classes that he really has a hard time comprehending, just so that he can get his 'daily bread.'
In church, he is very proud about having almost learned the Lord's Prayer. He has the biggest grin on his face while we're saying it as a congregation and he gets to participate. Good stuff.
Today however, for some reason the picture of Christ ascending into heaven after the Resurrection made an impact. In the Child's Picture Bible we have, it shows Christ with his arms raised, looking up to heaven, and floating in the sky.
It took us a while to figure out why Connor kept raising his arms up open & high, with his head back (we're all sitting quietly in the first row, of course). Eventually Lee told him, "Connor, you're not ascending. Put your arms down."
No, I don't know what the rest of people at church thought of this :P
And I wrote my dad's name on the banner at the altar to remember those who have died in the last year - today being the Feast of Remembrance.
