Quote of the Week

“You are the one thing in this world, above all other things, that you must never give up on.” – Lili Reinhart

Fact of the Week

There is a stadium in Brazil in which the midfield line lies on the Equator, making each team defend one hemisphere.

Joke of the Week

As an attorney in a major New Mexico law firm, I have many colleagues who work long hours. However, the reputation of one of my partners’ workaholic ways even extended beyond the office. He not only had to leave work early one day because of a medical problem, but was also told by his doctor to stay home until the end of the week. My colleague grudgingly agreed to comply. In the middle of the week, our receptionist received a call for him. She announced that the partner was out of the office until Friday.
"Good," the caller said. "That’s all I wanted to know." It was my partner’s doctor.

Tim gets baptized

Tim decided he wanted to get baptized. It was a long process for him, but I am really proud of him because he took the time to think about it and didn't do it "just because he was of age". Here is the cake that Pea-ma bought.
My dad baptized and confirmed him. Here they are right before. Tim is upset because I made him dress up and wear a tie. Doesn't he look handsome! (Try to picture him without that horrible look on his face!)
Here is a family photo, sorry I look tired, I was becoming blind from the flashes! Alex wasn't with us. The rockstar is on a tour of Canada right now.

Here is the whole family minus Ryan's and Jason's family who couldn't come. I am so glad that everyone turned out to support Tim. Uncle Jason called later with his congrats.

Special thanks to the missionaries for teaching Tim, and The Rex family for participating as well, that meant a lot to us. I think it really helped Tim's embarrassment factor that his bishop is also his neighbor and he is comfortable with him. Also thanks to the Primary for sending a representative so that Tim felt accepted by his peers and teachers. It was a great day!

Congratulations to Tim! We're so excited for you and your family. You were very brave to sit by the bishop on Sunday - some kids can't quite come up with the courage to accept the invite! :)
