As Lydia just turned 12 years old, it reminded me of when my brother John turned 12 and became a deacon in the Aaronic Priesthood. I was going on 10 years old at the time. My cousin Ginger and I having heard somewhere that part of a deacon's duties was to care for the church grounds, ("Deacons help the bishop look after the temporal needs of the Church. This could include gathering fast offerings, helping to care for those in need, and helping to care for the meetinghouse and grounds." -I just now lifted that from the official LDS Priesthood manual.) had a good time throwing gum wrappers and little bits of paper on the floor at church in front of John and pointing at him singing "You're a deacon, you're a deacon!"
