Greta was so excited to be feeling well enough for First Communion. She bounded down the stairs that morning. We went ahead and gave her some ibuprofen so she would make it through the ceremony without feeling sick again. It worked! Here are some pictures before and after (no pictures allowed during mass). I somehow missed a picture of Greta and her teacher and also Greta with the priest. I’ll blame the flu.
It was raining before and after mass so we mostly got stuck taking pictures inside. I was able to get a few before of just Greta, but she wasn’t in a great smiling mood and I didn’t want her to get too wet before going to mass. Greta got to be the leader of the offertory procession. After pictures we just headed back to our house alone since the flu germs were everywhere in our house. We still got the cake we ordered and Greta enjoyed opening all of her presents.
