"So Frequently we mistakenly believe that our children need more things, when in reality their silent pleadings are simply for more of our time."

McKaylie's Baptism

McKaylie was baptized and confirmed on May 25. It was a really wonderful day. She looked so beautiful and I could hardly believe that she was old enough. She was so ready to be baptized and so excited about it. Afterwards, she was just glowing. She told me that it was so cool and felt so good. A friend of ours let her borrow their baptism dress, so, McKaylie was actually baptized in a white dress instead of the white jumper. She felt so special!

Chad and I are so proud of her, but it's a little sad, too. Our kids are growing up so fast. McKaylie is now starting a whole new part of her life. As Vance told her, now her choices count. It always amazes me that some of the most wonderful times in life pull at your hear strings so much. We are proud of McKaylie and her choice to be baptized. She's a beautiful daughter of God and I know He's proud of her, too.
