{Junior} Mr. Berean

A few months back, Oliver was asked to be a junior attendant for Berean's Winter Homecoming. (This is the school that I teach preschool for) He was excited, but didn't really know what to expect. I was excited--but EXTREMELY nervous that he would chicken out at the list minute.

Thankfully, he did SO well!!! He and Ellie (a friend of his) walked hand-in-hand (in the dark!) and sat down on their little chairs, just like they were supposed to. (Oliver later told me that it was okay that he had to walk in the dark, since he's nocturnal.)
(sorry it's blurry!)

They sat quietly and patiently while the jazz band played, and while the candidates were being introduced. And when it was over? They got a present! (Ollie can VERY easily be won over with tractors.)

It was such a fun evening. And I STILL can't believe how brave he was.

Those are the CUTEST photos ever! I'm so glad he was brave (and that he received a tractor). We should've gone to the game to see Oliver and Ellie. We talked about it, and then, I think we forgot or something :( How irresponsible are we on that one....Oh well....thanks for the photos.

I love that he said he was nocturnal! He has some of the best one liners ever.
