A couple of firsts today . . .
He was then set-apart as a deacon after church with just our family present. It was a nice blessing.
So today was his first day of passing the sacrament. He also was in charge of bringing the bread and so Miles and I made some last night. He did a fine job! He was about 2 feet shorter than the rest of the group of there. But that was to be expected. Jonas commented on his stature and I told Jonas that it won't be much different for him when he's up there. :) Cute, short boys.
I also had a first today. I drove Ben's stick-shift truck to church. It was super scary! I had thoughtfully planned my route. I stalled twice on my way there; it was at a 4-way stop and I had to wave people on. It was awesome. Then coming home I waited until most people were gone from the parking lot. I also planned a strategic way home that worked out just dandy. I didn't stall once. I pretty much stayed in 2nd-gear (my route is all through neighborhoods), but did venture into 3rd a few times.
I'm glad that's over with.
