I love the Saturdays or Sundays when I find a church that is having First Communions. The girls are in beautiful white dresses with organza, frills and appliques. Their hair has been "done." Usually it is pulled back and arranged in curls. The families are standing around so proud and taking pictures with their digital cameras. There are always professional photographers there too, who make very posed pictures of the family with their angel in white holding a candle and Prayer book. Now boys also have First Communion but their dressing up doesn't last long. Unless a mother is holding on to her son, he has his coat off, if he had one, and his shirttail out by the time he gets out the door of the church.
