Good Friday...

Today will go down as the first time we took our children to Mass. Yes, I know we should have been taking them for a while now, but the weekends were always our down time. One day, each of us gets to sleep in & take the kids in the morning while the other gets to sleep in. Being Good Friday, we decided we really needed to start going to our church as the boys will be going to school right beside (at least for the first few months until the other school is built) it. I am happy to report they did super well. As the priest was walking in, G decided he was going to announce to everyone that he likes to dance. We tried to keep them quiet & for the most part they used indoor voices & were very quiet. They had a children's liturgy & the boys went down to sit with everyone & then ran back up the aisle. We tried to get them to see that all the other kids were making their way to the alter & that it was okay to be there with everyone else. Maybe as they go more they'll get more comfortable with it. G sang the responsorial prayer & was repeating "Lord have mercy" in a singsong with the children's choir & congregation. At first he was only getting the "cy" part, but I started singing it closer to him & he was starting to get it. After he did it right, he threw his hands in the air & said "I did it!". A few people around us chuckled. They went up with us for communion & G turned around & didn't pay attention that I went to the left side & he stayed put. A few other women in the line turned him around and he finally saw me. All in all, the day went well & we will be headed back on Sunday!
