Cynthia was confirmed this weekend. Most of the family was there to see her special day. We are so thrilled she was willing to express her faith in this most wonderful rite of passage. Her Grandma Tess (Andrea's mom) was her sponsor. They did several service projects together in preparation. The Archbishop presided over the ceremony. I felt like his homily spoke volumes to the kids as well as me. Cynthia is pictured with the Archbishop as well as Fr Steve Pohl, SMM's new pastor.

She says she wanted a green birthday party with her friends. All of the parents called ahead and asked if she meant the color green or something to recycle.
SMM enjoyed great success in the Governor's Cup competition this year. The picture below is of the team after their overall District win - 1st in Quick Recall, 1st in Future Problem Solvers and Cynthia received 2nd in math.
