Today at church Brogan graduated from Nursery and moved up into Primary with the Big Kids Here he is enjoying an after-church snack, wearing his lucky sweater, apparently. We didn’t know it was his lucky sweater until this morning, and I have no idea where he got the idea
He was excited about being with Avery and all the big boys and girls, and happily went and sat in the seat Avery led him to! He sat there quietly for a minute or two while people were still filing in, and then he turned around and, with one of his classic, exaggerated facial expressions, said “But I need a toy..!” But he had a good time, and was excited when we picked him up at the end of church.
Avery was at least as excited as Brogan about his move to Primary! As they were sitting and waiting for it to start, Avery was introducing him to all her friends, “Hey, this is Brogan, and he’s 3, so he’s a big boy now, and he’s coming to Primary now!” No matter that most of them already knew him
Oliver does not move up into Nursery until March, when he turns 18 months old, so for now, he still spends all 3 hours of church with Gabe and/or me. And that is just the way he wants it to be. Forever, probably I did warn the Nursery workers today that when Oliver starts coming, he will more than make up for Brogan’s complete lack of separation anxiety!!
