growing, growing

Sunday was "Promotion Sunday" at church.

Basically that means that Nora sits with us at "big church" before taking off for Bible Hour. We are now responsible for bringing money (for her) for communion and securing three seats instead of two.

(And she wasn't all that crazy about it either. She kept asking me when she got to go to class.)

Sunday was another reminder that she is growing up-despite all that I try to do to prevent that from happening.

She does not yet realize how lucky she is to have special friends at church. These three (Gibson, Sutton and Nora) are precious. They were all born within a month of each other. And they really love each other! Nora told me just the other day that she was going to marry Sutton...watch out Dwight and Dallas! And she is constantly telling me that Gibson is her best friend.

Nora and Gibson, after FINALLY getting released to go to class, proudly showing us their new Bibles and pencils.
Our fuzzy family picture. (Matthew thought I should have followed the dress code for our family that day...I don't have a cute red shirt though, guess I need to go shopping.)

Didn't I just bring her home from the hospital? Isn't she still supposed to the be in the nursery? Sigh, you are growing up too fast!

We love you Nora...you are such a big girl!

We too had promotion at Church. We have a Children's Church for kids ages 3-kindergarten then 1st-5th is in another class called Bible Basics. Caleb moved into Bible Basics this past weekend....made me so sad :( It is hard to let them grow up sometimes.

You got some fantastic photos! It's always my goal to take pictures on Sunday, when we're all looking our best, but between running late before church and spilling lunch on ourselves after church, it never seems to happen.

So it sounds like you have an attended nursery during worship? I'm jealous about that! Drew's frequent squealing outbursts are not very condusive for auditorium worship. I always think the people sitting next to us must have drawn the short straw. ;)
