That's what his sister says, anyway. J keeps saying "when is Jack going to be Baptist again?" or "What is he wearing to his Baptist?"
She is still working on the terminology, but she was a good kid the entire time. Father Tom was fabulous and included the kids in everything he could. M got to get the holy oil for anointing his head, S and J helped with the water. When it was time to bless the water, I think the kids were expecting a magic trick as the priest turned the tap water to holy water. It was very theatrical and the ceremony was better than I could have hoped for. It can be overwhelming sometimes, seeing all of our kids - realizing that there are five. During the blessing over me, which God knows I needed, I choked up hearing Father say how very blessed we are. My four beautiful girls, my handsome son, all in there - in perfect health with our amazing, supportive family and friends around us (or with us in spirit - Vic!).
