In a comment on the table manners post, Suzanne T. joked that it sounded more like 'stable manners'. Pretty funny. Especially considering that Sunday night the older kids were out with their aunt and she wanted to take a picture of the girls in their matching dresses. Regina kept holding the skirt of her dress against her leg in an awkward manner. When asked why, she replied that she had chicken poop on her dress and didn't want anyone to see it. Yep, raised in a barn!
The high note was the day before when Blaise had his First Communion interview with Father G. He answered the questions well and after the interview Father complimented Blaise on how well he had looked Father in the eye and spoken cheerfully and confidently.
