On Saturday, August 2, I became officially old to myself. I remember my baptism. It was on June 2, my mother's birthday. My mother's 29th birthday. So, I am already older than my mom was at that same milestone in my life. Wow--my parents must have felt REALLY old this time around.
On her big day, Mila was nervous and excited and so sweet. She said the water felt warm and wonderful and, in her words, "I just can't really explain the feeling that I have inside, you know?" I could have cried all day (not because I felt old.) Baptisms are pretty awesome. My hair was pretty not awesome. And my grandpa said I looked tired and that I needed a vacation. Oh well. These are the prices you pay for being an old woman, I guess.
The whole family
*Mom, if you want a picture of you guys on here, you will have to send it to me. I have two of the three of you. In one, your eyes are closed. In the other one, Mila's are. Dad, same thing. You look funny in the one of you guys. Just sayin'. In fact, if you have a better one of our family, send it to me also because dang!
