Catching Up: Jared's Baptism

You know you are behind when you are blogging about things two months late. But better late than never, right?

Jared turned eight at the end of August. (It makes me feel old to say that I have a child that is 8!) On September 5th, Jared was baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We had a lot of family that came out to be here, including Dave's mom, my parents and two of my sisters, Alisa and Megan. It was great to have family here to share in the special event.

Jared, I want you to know how proud I am of you and your decision to follow Jesus. You have such a strong desire to do the right thing. I hope you can keep with desire with you always. I am so grateful for the chance to be your mother, to see you learn and grow and to be able to see the world through the eyes of an eight-year-old again. I love your inquisitive mind and your "highly sense of humor," as you used to say. I hope you know how much I love you and always remember this special day.
