This day was crazy. I worked and both Tobin and Sarai had track meets. I rushed to Northboro to get Sarai from her meet early to find out her event was starting late. I did not make it to Shrewsbury High to get Tobin from his meet until 5:45. Tobin was to be at our church no later than 6:10. Somehow he ate, showered and we got to the parish by 6:15. Angels were with us!
Nettie and Russ met us at the church. Tobin chose Russ, his godfather, to be his sponsor. One of the suggestions given to the confirmandees was to connect your baptism with Confirmation. Tobin chose to do so.
Here Sarai is pinning Russ with a sponsor pin we gave him. While Nettie is pinning Tobin with a dove pin.
Now for just Tobin, the bishop and Russ.
Having a Confirmation during the week makes it difficult for relatives to come to mass, but it was wonderful for all those who did come. Thank you. I had a celebration for him on Sunday April 17th to which different relatives came and celebrated with us.
Here is the group photo from that celebration. We were blessed with my mom, Lawrence, Marie, Chip, Max and Mira, Jesse and Jacinta and Marita.

What a blessed day. We also found out that Mira and Max are having a baby in October! Another cousin, yeah!
