Marking their Baptism
The whole youth group for middle school was there and Sam and Chase have a few friends that were there. I wish they could go every Wednesday night to youth group to be with their friends and make new friends, but that is the night with their dad.
We have talked quite a lot about Baptism, Communion, and the boys are developing a good relationship with Father Clint, Erik and Mike who are the leaders of the youth at church. They are very likeable family men and I am glad the boys have them as role models.
After the ceremony, the boys and I went to Corner Bakery with Buffy and her girls. It was so nice. Then we went home to plant this tree in the backyard. It is a Red Maple to acknowledge the day of their Baptism. I got it at Big Lots for $15 and it is taller than Alex! Now that is tall. We all helped dig the hole and put it in the ground. I am excited to watch it grow. What it means to me is that the kids are growing into great gentleman (okay, that is a stretch but it is my hope). I want them to know that they are leaders and to not be afraid. That is all about being a part of the family in Fletcher365.
