First Communion

This has been a big weekend for the Speelman family.  Today was Truitt’s First Communion celebration!  To be completely honest- it is officially his second communion.  A couple of years ago Truitt was behind me as we went up to the front of the church to receive communion.  After receiving the host I looked behind me to make sure Truitt was still there and I saw that something was in his mouth.  He had that look of total guilt on his face and he began to take the host out of his mouth.  I quickly made a facial gesture that prompted him to leave it right where it was.  When we returned to our seats Truitt simply said, “She gave it to me!”.  However, this time was much more special.  Truitt has been very excited about today.  He did such a great job.  All of his friends looked so handsome and the girls were just beautiful in their white dresses.  I was able to convince Truitt to get a photo taken with Caroline- his best “girl” friend.  True and Caroline have been great friends ever since kindergarten.  He once told me that he likes Caroline because she likes “dirt and frogs just like me”.  They are a pretty adorable little couple- but of course, they are just friends ;).  I tried to get a photo of Truitt with everyone that shared his special day, but I missed two very important people- Tim and Nancy.  I don’t know how they snuck away without having their photo taken (I could have been distracted by the two youngest Speelman’s who were being very high maintenance today.)  Thanks for coming everyone!!!
