Zachary's Baptism



We had a fantastic Saturday on Nov 7th, Zachary was baptized! He'd waited a long time for this day. He turned 8 on Sept. 9th just 4 days after the stake baptism day so he waited till October 10th and came down with the swine flu, so he waited another month (it gave him extra time to prepare). It was a beautiful day Saturday and there was a very calm and peaceful feeling. Three other children were being baptized that day. We met in a the chapel (I gave a talk on the Holy Ghost) Then we went to the baptismal font and when it was Zachary's turn Abby and Kaleb were so excited they could hardly stand it, Abby let out a little squeal of joy and fidgeted in her seat as she watched Zachary enter the water. Later she kept asking if it was her turn to get baptized. Afterward we went out to eat, Zachary choose McDonald's and we just had a wonderful time that entire day :)

Congratulations Zachary on being baptized. I didn't know you had to wait until you were 8. We are hoping to baptize Linnea before she is a year old.
