Tonight was the rehearsal for tomorrow's children's mass. The kids are all participating in some way or another. Julia is reading the prayers of the faithful, Emerson is playing the part of Mary and our little Blaise is debuting as a lamb. I won't bore you with the proud rants of a mother, but instead I will tell you that the shepherd boy in charge of this flock will have his hands full! The sheep outnumber the entire cast of the play. Mary was so proud of her role she was found to be preening herself all the way to Bethlehem where she pushed Joseph forward to help him remember his lines, and then gave us a thumbs up! Julia was loud and clear showing no nerves as she read the entire prayer, although has informed us that she will be wearing her brand new black converse high tops with her mismatched socks to show others that God loves everybody. My Blaise looks more like a deer in headlights than a sheep and Benedict is thinking he looks much more like baby Jesus than the doll they had Emerson practice with! Thankfully this was just the dress rehearsal!
