The Baptism

We've made some wonderful new friends while we've been visiting Grandma and Grandpa (aka Elder and Sister Christensen) here in Atlanta.  And that's mainly, because Steve and Christie have made so many great friends here while on their mission.  Everyone just adores them!

Tonight, we attended the baptism of this beautiful family, the ones we hung out with on Thanksgiving.  They've already taught me so much, so it was neat to see them all take this big step in life together.  

I've got more to say about the friendships that we have enjoyed while on our trip, but it's late, and we've got a long drive tomorrow...and I'm still sort of processing my thoughts on the experience that we have had together as a family over this Thanksgiving.  So much to much to internalize and ponder.  

I guess I will just say that this trip has been an unforgettable experience.  It's been fun.  It's been memorable.  And it's focused our minds and hearts on what really matters.  And for that I am most thankful.
