Rebekah

This is Rebekah. 
Seriously people..is she not just beautiful??
Prom is coming up soon. 
There are 3 boys that want to ask her to accompany them to said Prom. 
Because not only is she beautiful she is also really great fun to be with.
But Prom is exactly 3 and 1/2 weeks before her 16th birthday. 
She has bemoaned this fact.
But I am so incredibly proud of her!
Do you want to know why?
Because she has not once asked if she could go.
Many people have hinted that maybe she is close enough to 16 to go. 
What's 3 and 1/2 weeks, really? 
Factoring in the spirit of the law vs. the letter of the law...isn't she close enough?
But Bryan and I don't feel that way.
And neither does she, apparently.
Because when I talked to her about it she was flabbergasted....yes, flabbergasted. 
"I couldn't go to Prom when I was only 15, Mom!  It wouldn't be right!"
I love that girl!

What a wonderful girl! You've obviously brought her up to have a testimony of following the prophet.
