Jason's Confirmation
Jason was confirmed on Pentecost Sunday.  It was a beautiful day.  I had asked Jason if he needed to bring his speech but he said no, that Pastor had it.  Wrong!  He did a good job of adlibbing.  My honest child started his speech with "I don't like getting up early on Sundays...."  Tell it like it is, dear.  He went on to say that he did get up because he works the soundboard at church as a way of working for Jesus because it makes the service sound better.  After the service, Pastor confirmed with him that he will be continuing to do the soundboard even though he doesn't have to go to Sunday school any longer.   After the church service, we had a luncheon at our house.  It was wonderful to spend time with friends and family, especially those we don't get to see often.

                                      A rare sight - Jason in khakis, dress shirt, and tie.  He was going to wear cargo shorts and a short sleeve button shirt but he has an 8th grade dinner dance that he has to dress up for so the clothes are doing double duty (actually triple duty since he'll be wearing them for his graduation as well)
