some birthdays!

We have had some birthdays in our home these last few weeks.
Morgan turned 9 and Emily turned 11.
I have started to realize that my girls are turning into beautiful Young Women. I get a little misty eyed thinking about them in this way...where did the time go?
But then I realize this has been happening before my very eyes...
Emily came home the other day and ask me where I thought she should go to college...I stumbled a little since I had not even began to think about this. "Well," she says, "I think I want to go to BYU Idaho. That is a good place, right?"
You know, it is a good place and if there is her goal in the 5th grade....well, I say a prayer of thanks!
Morgan said in the car that one of her guy friends and her decided that "it was a Christian thing".
"What is?" I replied.
"I can't even remember now," she says, "But then my friend said 'But you are Morman...'"
"Oh?" says I...
Morgan says, "I told him I was Christian, TOO...and he said NO I wasn't cause I was Morman..."
She paused a little as if she was a little uncertain of what to make of this, so I said, "Well, you are a Christian since you believe in Jesus Christ. Next time he talks about this with you, you should let him know."
"Ok, that makes sense..." says Morgan.
I was pleased that Morgan had some foundation to say she was a Christian and help her little friend understand. But even more amazed that she was having what I consider a large conversation in the 3rd grade...guess that is a sign of the times.
