Last weekend was Father’s Day so here is our update for Mother’s Day as well for 2014. For Mother’s Day our church had the usual baby dedication and this year added a kindergarten graduation to encourage parents with school age children to have their kids participate in “big church” worship services.
Here is Jack with his best bud and the rest of the kindergarten class. They coincidentally were dressed alike. His mom has amazing taste.
We joke that anytime Jack is in front of a group of people, he turns on his game face. I mean, he gets really really serious.
Proof: here is four year old Jack in front of the church during a Christmas choir event. So serious.
I love how our church encourages families to participate in worship together. Last month during the sermon, I thought Jack was drawing a picture until he handed me a note he had written for me.
Then it was time for the obligatory after-church-special-day-please-young-children-give-me-ONE-good-picture-I-can-use-on-social-media photos.
And because it was Mother’s Day I found old pictures of my children when they were tiny which made me sad then looked at pictures again from this year and imagined that years from now they will look tiny in them and made myself sadder because women are masochists sometimes.
Guess what Doug got for Father’s Day! An abscessed tooth! Saturday night found us in the ER managing his pain and he was in no shape to lead worship or even move Sunday morning.
It was a memorable day of expressing our gratitude to the wonderful father of our family while he was under the influence of some heavy painkillers. Poor daddy is having oral surgery later this month.
I found this father/son gem.
I hadn’t posted these pictures yet from our last family photo session.
So blessed to be their mommy.
