It's Great to be Eight

My twin granddaughters, Sarah and Kathleen, turned 8 last month, and they were baptized today. Our church believes that children should be baptized when they are old enough (8) to make covenants with Heavenly Father.

Are these girls eight already? Wow. I think they were about three when we started teaching together. How time flies.
