Michael made his first confession tonight. Gosh he's cute. He was so nervous going into the box. We took him for ice cream afterwards to celebrate his pure little soul. Confession can be a daunting thing if you've been away for a while, or if its your first time, or if you need to go. Actually its always daunting. But boy is it nice to drop the past behind you and move on!
And our Pope abdicates tomorrow. He gave his final Papal audience today. I will miss Pope Benedict XVI. We're praying his successor is filled with tremendous wisdom and grace.
