Receiving the Gift of the Holy Spirit, which his sponsor (and our good friend) Charlene Colby and Archbishop Lavoie
This was Mom's and Jeannine's first visit to Saskatchewan, and they had a blast. Mom and Jeannine made themselves right at home, and it was really great to have them here. They spent a morning at preschool with Joey, where they were welcomed with a big sign when they walked through the door that said "Welcome Kokums" (grandmother in Cree) and were presented with an armful of handmade traditional gifts from the kids (dream catchers, sashes) and Louise at the preschool gave them each a pair of miniture mocassins, traditional Metis sashes, and they feasted on Bibles (smoked fish), fingers (deep fried bannock) and of course, traditional bannock. We also went to some great rummage sales were Jeannine scored a beautiful jacket, Mom scored a great deal on some capris and a jean jacket for herself. They also went to Colby's school where they toured the building, met his principal, and watched him participate in Track and Field. They also adventured around town, played at the playground and took oodles of pictures. All in all, it was a great week.
