Matt and Mandy

Previously: Franco asked permission to go to church with Matt. And Matt tried a spicy soup called posole.

That soup was good. But I thought I was going to breathe fire like a dragon!

Well, the spices can take some getting used to.

Next time I might need a bigger glass of milk! Thanks again for lunch.

So, Dad, can I go to church with Matt?

I don’t think so, boys. Our family’s been in our church for many generations.

Later, at Matt’s house …

Franco’s dad is a good man who wants the best for his son. He’s being cautious.

Sigh. I guess.

That night …

Franco’s still my best friend. And his dad’s great too. We don’t have to be the same to be friends.

Good thing … ’cause I’m pretty different from everyone!
