Erica's First Communion

On April 3rd, Erica made her First Communion. This was her special day and she kept reminding us all weekend. She kept saying "it is all about me" and then would wave her hand in front of her face. We would tell her that "Yes" it was her day, but she still had to help us get ready for her big day.

This is almost all of Erica's 2nd grade class. She had 54 students in her class and the classes were taught by Mrs. Rosemary Johnson and Mrs. Nicole Pfeifer. The posing for the class photo seemed to take forever.

Justin and Ashlin sat with Grandpa and Grandma Leader for Mass. Keith and I sat in our reserved seats with the other parents of Erica's class.

Take care,
