It's hard to believe that this is the year Zachary turns eight years old. Where has the time gone?
In our church, turning eight is a major milestone for a child because he can make the choice to be baptized. We've been trying to prepare Zachary for this choice since he was small, and we can see him getting more ready every day. He is excited about being baptized in October and seems to be prepared for this sacred ordinance.
Tonight we attended a short program held for children in our ward who are turning eight this year. Zachary learned what will happen at his baptism -- and when it will be! So grandparents and anyone else who would like to attend: please mark your calendars for Saturday, October 24 at 3:30 p.m. It will be a special day for our Zachary.
