Joseph got Baptized!

Three down!With each one, we let them choose the program they want. We only got to choose half this time, because another little girl was getting baptized too, so she got to choose the other half. Joseph chose to have all his brothers participate in his baptism with him, which was really special. It made me realize what close friends they have become. Maxwell gave the prayer (He was really scared and had to be dragged up there and he mumbled the whole thing, but he did it) and Samuel gave the talk on Baptism. He did a great job. I had him research it and write it down, then I reviewed it with him (uh, that's mother's speak for made it sound lots better by rewriting parts), then I told him he couldn't read the whole thing. He memorized most of it and only had to look down a couple times. You could see his little perfectionism coming out of him as he struggled so hard not to have to look down at the paper!Tons of people came, just because they were in the same class or in the primary with Joseph and Harley. What a different ward we have moved into! It was a great day. We did miss our family, though!

Congratulations! It sounds like your ward is warm and inviting. I hope you have many happy experiences there.
By the way, your dress is too cute! Please tell me you made it and then send me the pattern make/number.
