Confirmation, Driver’s Ed, and Grandma visits


Bryce’s Confirmation was last night at church, so he and I picked my Mom up in the morning and brought her home to stay with us for a few days.

Bryce and Grandma

Bryce looks so handsome in his suit, and he’s almost as tall as Grandma!

Bryce needed to be at church an hour early, so we all got dressed and ready to leave.  But first, we took a few pictures.

We got Bryce settled in with his sponsor (Uncle Joe), and all the other Confirmandi, to wait for the Bishop’s arrival.

The mass and ceremony went smoothly, and Bryce and Joe remembered their lines!

Bryce and Joe joined the Bishop at the altar for a picture, before everybody gathered in the Parish Hall for a dessert reception.

Congratulations Bryce “Thomas Becket”!

This week was Nicolas’ first week of Driver’s Ed, too, and he’s been enjoying his class.  He even had his first driving session already, and did really well!  I can’t believe he’s getting his driver’s license already!!


We’ve had some rainy days this week, and some beautiful sunsets!

Grandma will be staying with us for a few more days, and the kids are enjoying having her around – especially Bryce – he and Grandma share a love of card-playing, so he’s got a ready opponent!

With Grandma around, Bryce would rather play cards than X-box!

  1. So good to see a young man with values and also enjoying their Grandma, I hope she puts manners on him at the card table, I never could beat my Grandma, made her play with short sleeves too. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.
