It's been a couple of days since I've written because we've been quite busy. We had family in town from last Friday until Tuesday and then more birthday stuff and then catching up stuff and before you know it, a week and a half has gone by.
The main stuff? I now have a 12 year old. :)
Sean turned 12, which means he got the Aaronic Priesthood and was ordained to the office of a deacon at church. One of his main duties will be to pass the sacrament each week; kind of surreal that we have a child that old.
We were surprised that all the grandparents planned to come into town for the ordination, but pleased of course to have so much family all together to support Sean.
It doesn't seem that long ago that all those same people got together to witness his baptism at age 8, or even his blessing as a newborn. My, time does fly.
He's a great kid, and very talented. I'm so proud of his musical abilities, his fearlessness to get up in front of a crowd, his uncanny love for attention.
Big thanks to all our family members who came and made his weekend special. We love you all!
Happy birthday Sean! We love you so much!
