So, another big Sunday for Thomas.
All 1st graders were presented with a Bible from the church today. Thomas stood proudly with his friends at the front of the church and received his Bible from Shady Grove United Methodist Church--presented by mommy & daddy.
What a neat idea. I love the pomp & circumstance of Methodists. I love the ceremonies, making moments into big deals. And, I love that I can pass off my camera and capture it all!! (Thank you Nikki!!)
I feel terrible that we moved to Mechanicsville weeks before Gracie started first grade, and we weren't fully involved in the church until the following Easter--so she missed out on this opportunity. (And, honestly, with my shy violet, I guess it is more like mama missed out on this moment) But, there will be more "moments" to be had for all three kids.
The ceremony was short, and I am so unhappy with how I look in the video, but I am 6.5 months pregnant and fighting a cold--so I cold look worse.
But, I am sharing it, because it is hard to hide this proud mama beaming as my child officially receives his church Bible. He has several Bibles in his room--but this is a big deal, and a big moment that his father and I were only too proud to share with him.
Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.
