EJ's Class Saint Day

Hubby and I went to church today to attend the mass for the second grader's Saint Day mass.  Saint Elizabeth is their class saint.   She was known for helping poor people which is a very valuable  lesson that  kids need to learn.  Each second graders brought some  canned goods  to give to their chosen  charity.  They put it at the wagon and  presented in front of the altar during the presentation of the gifts.
Glad that both of my kids doesn't have  stage fright.
I recorded part of the readings.

They sung a song  after the mass (video below).
The mass was attended by classes from Kindergarten to 4th grade.
Next year, my kids will be separated because  our daughter will be in  the 5th grade.  They will no longer have the same schedule for lunch and for the masses.  I am  happy to see them  grow but at the same time, I am sad that they are growing up so fast.

Wedding Dance

One thing that  hubby and I did not do during our wedding day  was to dance.  He was  living  in Guam back then so there was no time for us to take any dance lesson.  Looking at one of the santa monica dance studios makes me wish that  we could have  a chance to have our first dance if given the opportunity.  I always feel so happy when I see a newly wed  do their first dance as a couple.  That is something that  we  didn't do.

Change can be very  scary.  Some of us are afraid of change especially if it would take  us out from our comfort zone but a lot of times, ...
