Quite the Honor

We received quite the honor a few weeks ago when Brent and Jennifer were asked to be the Godparents of Daniel Jonas Pablo Coche. 

Brent had performed the Cesarean section on Daniel's mother, Petronila, in March and Jennifer had taken care of mother and Daniel after wards.  

It was a really nice ceremony held after Mass.  There were about 15 babies baptized during the same ceremony.  Daniel received a beautiful white garment to celebrate the occasion.

Celebration of Family Day

Instead of celebrating Mother’s Day at the children’s school this year, they decided to celebrate Family Day since some of the children don’t have mothers.  Each class did a song or skit and there were some raffle prizes, although some of these came at the expense of really embarrassing the parents.  Then the teachers served a lunch of chicken, rice, vegetables, and sauce which they cooked themselves for over 300 people!  Jennifer wore the traditional women’s attire for the first time and managed to keep her skirt on without it falling off.
