A Momentous Event

My two oldest boys turned eight last month and were baptized members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints just this past Saturday.  This was such a wonderful experience for them and for all those who drove far to be there.

We are so proud of them and for the choice they’ve made.  It was funny watching the two of them.  Douglas was like a ball of wild energy hardly able to contain his excitement in the anticipation.  Reed was very solemn and took it all in with great seriousness.  Each reaction is so like their personalities in all they do.

Thank-you to all who came and the many of you who drove a long way to be with us.  We love you all!
