A glimpse of Rebekah at EFY

Rebekah went to her first EFY (Especially For Youth) down at BYU with her friend Courtney this week. She stayed at A. Richards Hall and after getting her all settled in I walked back to the car and tried not to cry. It was like a glimpse into the future.
She had an amazing time and made a lot of new friends. It was a little disconcerting to hear her talk about all these "hot" boys she had met. Is she really that old? My Dad told me to remind Rebekah "that 14-year old boys are not 'hot.' Some of them may be rather cute in their way, but mostly they are awkward, doofus dorks." To which her only defense was, "Tell Grandpa that most of them aren't 14 years old...they are 15!" Said with a "so there!" kind of attitude. :)
Classes, dances, scriptures, counselors, cafeteria food and dorm living. This is an experience she'll hold dear for a long time to come.

Rebekah, I love seeing the pictures of you at Heritage Halls!!! Did you think of me while you sat in the hallway across from the bathroom? because I sat there all the time leaned up on one wall, feet on the other, talking on the phoen. Ah the memories. I'm so glad that you had a fun time.
