The SVCC Bear

A week ago, Josiah bounded into the house after childrens' choir practice (Jeff picks him up on his way home from work), excitedly showing me a teddy bear and announcing that IT WAS HIS TURN TO KEEP THE BEAR FOR A WEEK!  Did I mention that he was a little excited?
I'm not sure how the order of which child gets it for which week is determined, but this cute teddy bear gets passed around to different members of the Prep Choir who take it home, love on it (or ignore it - who knows?), and then bring it back the following week so it can be given to someone else.
Josiah certainly didn't ignore it.  Oh no, this bear got plenty of cuddle time this week.  Isn't it delightful to see a great big boy at eight years of age snuggling with a special teddy bear?  
I think so.  ;-)  And that's just another reason why I love the SVCC!

...and your son will not lose the bear, I'm sure of it!

Oh, Julie, you're not speaking from personal experience, are you?? Surely, no one EVER loses the SVCC bear, right? ;-)

I know what having the teddy bear is like... :) I'm glad Josiah enjoys it!

It is so wonderful that they share him.
