This past Saturday, our family & friends came out to Loma Linda University Church to witness Ethan’s dedication to the Lord. It was a short & sweet segment officiated by Pastor Shawnna Campbell. Ethan did awesome for his first moment in the spotlight! He gazed out into the audience, quite unamused, then questioningly at Pastor Campbell. Thankfully there wasn’t any fussing or fretting (save for a few seconds of squirming).
I, on the other hand, was praying I didn’t have milk stains on my dress nor any funky flyaways that my brush failed to tame. I couldn’t bear to look up at the screen lest the camera add 20 pounds.
Our nephew Jeremie was also in the spotlight that service during children’s story! (I’ve an inkling that these boys are gonna be naturals onstage.)
Afterwards our fam & friends joined us for lunch at A Dong Vietnamese Restaurant in Loma Linda. Good food, great company, and a meaningful day for our family.
A big thank you to those who made it out to support (my mom & dad, Jordan’s mom & dad, Nate, Christine, Faith, JD, Jam, Jeremie, Roy, Steve, Michelle Y, Michelle D, Kevin, Manngo, Dwight, Jemma, Baby Prince, Mary, Ryan, Landon, Auntie Isan & Uncle Henry, Auntie Minh & Uncle Norman, Lola Lily, Uncle Eli & Auntie Cindy, Lian, Evan). We love you all.
