Today, Laura received a gift from St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church at a ceremony at church. Every year, the chuch recognizes the Kindergartners and the next step in their education. The Kindergartners are introduced to the congregation and a small ceremony ending with a blessing is done during the early service. Laura and I were able to attend the practice yesterday (Thanks B and Rachel for watching John!), but I was unable to take her to the service today because John is running a slight fever. When I told Laura that she wouldn’t be able to go today, she was crushed. REALLY crushed. Fortunately, Uncle Jeremy came to the rescue and took her to the service this morning! I very much appreciate it and Laura is VERY happy to have her new backpack!
