Born Again

Chase has been born again! Yes it's just like your thinking re baptized and all. It happened this last Saturday. We were at the church for Anne Harley's (a sweet young lady from our ward) baptism. It was my first baptism as the new Primary pres. We came early to get the font filled with nice warm water. The kids and I were able to get a game of Ticket to Ride in as we waited. Then we were there for her very special program (I'm so glad we were, since Laurie Layer and my crew were the only "visitor" people there).

After the program we went to drain the font. Poor Brother Pace went to pull on the chain connected to the plug, (I put in the plug really well because I didn't want any leaking) and it broke in two. Now we had the problem of trying to pull up the plug that is now three feet under water! No ones arm is that long!

Chase saved the day. We stripped him down to his underwear and he dove down to take care of our plug problem. It took him several tries but he was finally able to get it up.

So, does sacred water post baptism re cleanse his little soul. I don't know, but it sure was a relief to have the problem solved!

I can just picture this whole scene and it is cracking me up! Chase, you're awesome!

I think it definately counts!

I don't know . . . what about him swimming around in all those sins that washed off of Anne? =)

(I like the new background, by the way--very pretty. Is it a St. Patty's special or just an accident that it's green? And you're the kind of fun mom who does green food on March 17, so we have to chat . . . I need some ideas.)

That is awesome. I think we might need some of that around here. What a great Mom you are for making SURE that the plug was in good and tight. I've never heard of one sticking. Maybe it is all that working out that has made you super strong?!!! Great memory.
