Spencer's birthday week was filled with interviews with the primary president, Bishop, and Daddy and a whole lot of being the center of attention (much to his own chagrin). On Sunday, May 6, 2007 Spencer officially graduated from Primary and was ordained to be a deacon.

Staying true to ward tradition he got to choose an article of faith to recite during sacrament meeting. We were not surprised at all that he had to choose the only one that doesn’t begin with “We believe”. He’s a lot like his Mom in that regard! He’s never had any trouble with memorizing, so he knew it perfectly in very little time. His biggest challenge was slowing down enough so that he could be understood. He did speak a lot more slowly than most of his practice rounds, but we still got comments on the impressive speed of his delivery!

We were thrilled that Peter, Mika, Lauren, & McKenzie, and Aunt Marilyn were able to join with us while he was being set apart. The only “negative” to all this is the sinking realization that we’re old enough to have a priesthood holding young man in our family! Spencer is an excellent example and a joy to have in our family.
