our breakfast. Then we all went home - some of us had parties with our
Laura - receiving my Holy Communion means I'm taking a step closer to Jesus and I'm in his family. Everyone looked lovely in their dresses and suits
Georgia - I thought it was special because we had our family there and I think it was nice that they were there to support us. I really enjoyed it
