David’s Baptism

Vic, Nate and David after the baptism

On Mother’s Day we were in Dickinson for David’s baptism. I have been meaning to share some of the pictures of the day, but haven’t gotten to it. We have had such a rush of a spring with high school track meets and a few meets of Paulina’s that we have been able to get to, and everything else; it has been crazy. Tonight as I am watching the DVR version of The Voice finale I will try to catch up with a post or two. I have also admitted that I have spring allergies. As I look back to the many years of fighting through illnesses and even bronchitis during track season, I started to look at when the pollen began each year, and my sinus issues match with the blooming of the trees and the flowers and all. And I love gardens. Oh well…. at least since spring was actually early this year, I am healed by now and should be feeling better this Friday and Saturday when we head for the State Meet. It will be much better than sleeping through most of the meet in the tent just trying to wake up for our events. Maybe I will actually see the meet and enjoy it for a change.

Well, hope you enjoyed the pictures. The baptism was in the UCC Church in Dickinson, ND. Nate’s sister was the sponsor, but Mr. Papa would not let her hold little David until it was over. What a deal! The outfit he had on during the event is a family heirloom handed down from the mid-1800’s. It is still in pretty good condition even for having gone through all three of their children. It was used by Nate and his father and beyond. Pretty neat.

The baptism seemed to be a bit of a problem for Ana. I think it was because she was not the center of attention, but how could that be. HaHA!!

    So interesting how alike mother and son are in their baby-natures. Amazing about the christening clothes being handed down for so many generations. It looks like it was a very special day. (Sorry about the hay fever. It’s a recent addition to my daughter’s life tho now in retrospect I can see that she’s probably had it for a few years… we bought an air filter for her room and it seems to help a lot.)

    David looks like another dear child, and that his baptism was special to attend. Is this your son or daughter’s child? Smiled that Ana had a little bit of trouble not being the center of attention. Another child has a way of doing that! Hope you have a Happy Memorial Day weekend, Lucinda.
