A special day and Day 16

Yikes Day 16 means time is running out, so much to do so little time! Some serious list making needs to happen in the morning.
I shared in such a special day today but forgot the camera! One of my colleagues at work (and a friend) is leaving to work and live in Melbourne. She is a single Mum to Baxter who is 7. He has been going to the catholic primary school here in town and today he was baptised. None of his family is Catholic or in fact regularly goes to church but he has enjoyed learning at school and made this decision with the support of his Mum. She invited the 'horsey' one and I to go along to the Mass (the horsey one has babysat him many times). It was lovely. Father Tim and Sister Marg along with teachers from the school and his class mates made it such a special experience. It was very interactive with a lot of teaching and explaining to the children what was happening and for what reason. We feel very privileged to have shared this experience with Kylie and Baxter especially at this time of year amongst the hustle and bustle of the 'silly season' when we sometimes forget the real reason for the season. I had a warm and fuzzy feeling all day.
