Nora, Isaiah and Micah- Looks chilly.  Olivia looks on. 
Family and friends wait for the pastor and church members to arrive.
Pre-Baptism conference.  Daddy and boys- so sweet.

Micah in the water- it was really chilly.  

"Death, burial and resurrection!"

Isaiah ready to go under.

Death, burial and resurrection!  

Family and friends hug, kiss and congratulate.  
Elijah decided to wait for a while which is totally fine.  We're glad he isn't swayed by his brothers.  Micah was totally excited and wanted to share his Good News with everyone.  He took the video of the baptism that Larry Foster made for us (thanks Larry) to school and the whole 2nd grade (31 kids) watched it together.  We are so proud of all 3 of our boys!  Praise God for their growing faith.

Simile Metaphor Collection

Elijah after running: My heart is beating like a coconut rolling down a hill.
Elijah on urination: Pee is like horses galloping out of the gate. Once they get started you just can't stop them.
Elijah: If school were a human I'd give it a wedgie.
Elijah: I am like a hot rod and I just want to be a plain old Ford
Elijah on the fruits of the spirit: I've got them all covered except self-control. Its like a tiny green tomato and the rest are all big ripe ones. Especially love. Its like the biggest tomato we saw in the garden tonight.
