Dad & Mom Garrison and Lloyd & Julie

This month, Dad and Mom Garrison have been staying with us. We’ve been to Disneyland, Palm Springs, and all over. We’ve had many rousing hands of “Hand and Foot” (card game) and caught up on family news.

Last night Dad and I went to Mass. I still can’t participate fully in the Eucharist yet — not until the Easter vigil — but I was able to go up and get a blessing from the priest. I did my first confession two nights ago and now I’m free!

In 32 hours I will be a Catholic!
