Welcome to the Ward, Brother Smith!

Saturday my son got baptized. He was so excited! We were sitting there waiting for his Uncle Hank to get done with his talk, and my Dear Boy goes "Oh! I am so excited I think I am going to faint!" He had to get dunked FOUR times because he kept trying to go swimming or was fun. He was so excited and did so good. I can't believe he is 8.

The next day in Sacrament he was called up by our bishop as the newest member of the ward. The bishop had to tell him that it was ok for him to go sit down a few times cause he just kept standing there. He is so silly. As I was sitting there, I was thinking about his life and how fast time has goen by. And another interesting note...he was baptized on November 1, 2008. He was blessed on November 2, 2000. 8 years almost to the day. Thankfully, his baptism went smoothly. When he was blessed he cried the entire my grandfather and a younger cousin of mine had both just been in an accident a few days before and had both died as a result of the accident, so I was a mess beyond the usual.

I also have a new calling at church. I am the Enrichment Leader for the Meadows 1st Ward. I really am excited but it's a big calling. That's ok though...I think I can handle it.
