This afternoon I looked up from nursing Ben to see the girls both dressed up and kneeling down at the coffee table. They were singing quietly. I asked if they were praying and Bella replied, “No, we’re at Church.”
“You’re at Church; but not praying?”
“No, we’re singing.”
I explained that singing at Church is a kind of praying.
I’m bemused about the head coverings. No one in our parish covers her head for Mass. At our former parish, yes, there were a few older women who did. But that’s been more than a year. I can only guess maybe she’s thinking of the veils at her cousin’s first communion.
I wish I’d been able to get a better picture of Sophie in her little green headscarf. She was so adorable.
