Baptism Day

The Sunday after his birthday, Richie was baptized and confirmed a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  It was a beautiful day, and a wonderful experience!  Richie asked his Dad to baptize him, me to talk on baptism, Gramma Gail to talk on the Holy Ghost, Grandpa Worthy to confirm him and his Grandma and Grandpa Call to give the prayers.  I was so proud of Richie for choosing to be baptized and setting a good example for his sisters.  He is so thoughtful and sensitive and this experience meant a lot to him.  I love him so much and I am so lucky I get to be his mom!
