I've Been Busy

I haven't been able to keep up with my posting here. May has been a busy month, and June will be too.
But here is a pictorial of what has been going on.

Our Combined Church choir was invited to do the 5:30pm mass at St. Patrick's Cathedral on May 12, 2012.  The combined choirs were the English Choir, the Spanish Choir and the Children's Choir.  It went very well and our Choir Director (far right) was very pleased with how we did.

On May 19, 2012, I went to an art festival at St. Peter's Church in the Bronx.  I went with my friend Liz and we met a lot of fabulous artists and got to view some of their works.

On May 20, 2012, our church had a bake sale.  We had to offset the cost of the trip to St. Patrick's Cathedral.  I'm not sure how much money we made but it was a couple of hundred bucks.  This is a picture of my dear friend Liz and my daughter.

On May 24, 2012, My daughter made her Confirmation.  She was Confirmed Clare (of Assissi). Doesn't she look beautiful?

She and her fellow classmates were confirmed by Edward Cardinal Egan Archbishop Emeritus of New York.  How cool is that?

There were 51 Confirmindi.  You have to love this shot.  Everyone was in the way and I managed to stand on the bench, lift this over my head and snap.  Without looking through the viewfinder.  Not bad if I do say so myself.

It wasn't all hard work.  We got to have some fun.  Clarissa learned how to skate this weekend. we went to Central Park and she picked it up right away.  She is ready for the roller derby.

Today I was actually a little bored. So I decided to go to St. Peter's Church cemetery to take some pictures and was pleased to see so many American Flags at the headstones of our departed soldiers.  This particular one was for a soldier from World War 1.
