Men in suits...

Yesterday was a very special day for the teenager... he was ordained by his father and had conferred upon him the Melchizedek Priesthood. We are so proud of him and for all that he does in his life to follow Jesus Christs example. He has a beautiful testimony and strives to do things, and be in places to deepen his testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Most of the time, the teachers become the students... and that is the case with our teenager, he teaches me everyday! It will be so fun to watch him in the next phases of his life.

He has a buddy since we moved here that has a birthday a week after his, and so they have encouraged each other and accomplished many of these milestones at the same time over the years. Conor went first and was able to stand in on Jacob's ordination for his very first act in the Melchizedek priesthood. So cool!! We are really proud of these young men and can't wait to see them in the Temple, very soon!
