It's Great To Be Eight!!!!

When you are eight in our house you get to make the choice to baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  Julia turned eight in May and decided to get baptized.  Our stake has a new procedure for children of record baptisms.  We are instructed to have our children baptized on the first Saturday of the month at 9:00 am.  Well, Julia could get baptized on June 4th, but we had a swim meet so we chose to do it on July 2nd because there was a bye for our meets.  So she got baptized on July 2nd.  She was baptized and confirmed by her daddy.  We loved going to the church and celebrating her decision.  She had a moment of being afraid that everyone would be look at her, but she was able to step into the font.  We love her and everyone that was there love her very much.
