Religious Emblem for Boy Scouts and First Reconciliation

Another busy week means lots of hustle and bustle and blessings, but it also means less posts on my little corner of blog land here....But, I thought I would highlight a few big celebrations we had this past week with Cupcake #2 and #3 :)

Last Sunday, February 5, was Scout Sunday, and Scout Sunday is celebrated each year on or around the founding date of Boy Scouts, February 8, 1910.  Since this past fall, my son and our family have been working on his religious emblem, called "Parvuli Dei" (Children of God).  Each faith denomination has it's own religious emblem and Parvuli Dei is the Catholic religious award.  We used a booklet called Parvuli Dei and worked on activities to complete the program and on Scout Sunday he was presented with his award. Here is a picture of the emblem pinned to his scout shirt.

This past Wednesday, Feb. 8, my daughter received her First Reconciliation with some of the other children in our homeschool group.   So this was the first time she experienced the graces, peace and joy of this beautiful sacrament!  It was a blessed day!

Here are some photos of the day:
 One of our moms made these 2 beautiful cakes that were delicious after our potluck luncheon. 

The white cake had the Isaiah scripture on it and it was a red velvet cake.

Our homeschool group is blessed with Fr. Alex, a holy man who invests much time, support, and smiles for our homeschool families and children.  

So many blessings this past week and we are grateful for our faith, family, and above all, God's mercy and forgiveness!

What a beautiful emblem for your son's scout uniform. Good for him! :-) And, congratulations to your daughter on the occasion of her First Penance! May God bless her always! :-) My daughter just made her First Penance on January 28th. Her First Holy Communion is on May 5th. We are really looking forward to it.

Thanks for the congrats Lisa and for your kind comments! Congrats to your daughter and my daughter's first Communion will be on May 5th as well! :) We are looking forward to it too! :)

We missed BS Sunday because of the 4 inches of snow:( I will have to look into this medal as I haven't seen it yet but my son is still in the earlier stages. I get a bit confused with all the different ranks and when things can begin :) Well done for your son! Voted for you today.
