School Work

These days - towards the end of our school year - Charlie is more eager to "do school", but it's got to be on his terms...

If he doesn't feel like doing his ABC flash cards, he'll just draw his famous-'round-here people....

 or if he's in a bendable mood, he'll write his name . . . .

Gash in the forehead.  Scooter accident.  Could've used stitches, but I did an "at home" job [Gotta love butterfly bandages and New Skin!]. It was only a quarter inch long, and, well, he's a boy.  All boy! (notice the scrape on the nose from a previous day? - he's got a new long stripe down his belly now too. Last night he was climbing a baby pine tree at the ballpark and must have scraped it all the way down!).  And I could've made sure to avoid the scooter incident had I been a good mother and made them always wear their helmets!  I slacked on the scooter helmet rule.  I admit it.  Not the bike or rollerblade rule - only the scooter.  But no more!

First Holy Communion!

John Paul made his First Holy Communion last Saturday. Such a glorious day in his life. He was beaming!

With his banner... 
He had St. Giuseppe Moscati, St. John Bosco, Blessed Pope John Paul II and St. Padre Pio 

My favorite!

Little Ham :)

With his proud parents!

Had to have some pure John Paul-ness!

His beautiful cake

And he had to have the "Jesus piece"

Charlie swipin' his cash :)

His gift from Grandma and Grandpa (plus a Bible)
I still need to take pictures of his gifts from us.
