Andrew, the problem is solved by changing your school system to the normal that those born the same year start the same time  ;) . I'm sure Britain can choose to do differently, since this is the case, to make the point of this change same for you as it is for most countries.

It was a tradition in my family growing up to have Scalloped Oysters. I loved helping Mom make it, but refused to eat the oysters - I would pick them out, give them to Grandma or Dad and devour the rest of the dish. Same with Oyster Chowder. Wouldn't eat the oysters but loved the *juice*.

When my Mom's Branch in the tiny town in South Dakota put together a cookbook, she submitted her Scallop Oyster recipe. I will include it, word for word, then in a different color will correct it - add the missing parts. When it came time for her and the Sisters with her to edit it, she was in the hospital with pneumonia and they didn't catch the errors. This cookbook is one of the largest I have ever seen put together by a very small branch. Then a few years later, they put together yet another book with the recipes that were submitted too late AND from sisters all over the Stake. These two books are my Go To books because they are Tried and True AND Family Approved Recipes as well as my Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book, third printing, 1976. I have lost so many pages out of that book, that I am constantly looking for a replacement book that was printed in the same year - I found one on Amazon and sent Husband the link but he ordered the new one ~ 16th Edition, 2014. NOT the one I wanted, and I really don't like the new format. Oh, Hey, for my Christmas gift from Santa - think I will order it.

I could also bring Grandma's fudge recipes if I can find them, but they require standing over a double boiler constantly stirring. You know, with all the time Grandma spent standing at/over the hot stove cooking I'm guessing that is how she kept warm. She was the skinniest of all of us!

Thanks for the perspective.
I didn't grow up in the Church, but every member of my wife's family are late birthdays (October, November, December), and they all expressed to me how much this would have changed their world for the better.

I think the line between mid-late 11 year olds and their 12year old peers moving into a whole new organization was given priority over the 10 year olds, who are seen as firmly still in the Primary program.

I don't doubt this will be difficult for some, especially in units like yours with a very, very small primary group. I don't know that there is a One Size Fits All solution that would address that scenario to the benefit of all the rest as well in the way this new approach appears to address.

Taalcon,

It is very real in the UK. A child born in November of one year, and one born in the January of the next could well be the only two in their Primary class this year. Not Primary 11, but Primary 10 and 11. They are in the same school year - they are best friends. The November child will go to youth, receive the Aaronic Priesthood and go to the temple. The January one will not.

Under the old system the November child moved to Sunday School and Aaronic Priesthood in November and in January the other followed in. Two months later, not twelve.
You may not see this as a problem - but having experienced similar problems in the past, I know it will be.

I am not saying it is wrong to do it. But it will cause problems. And what about twins born either side of midnight on the 31st December.

And now January babies will be alone in Primary for months. It's swings and roundabouts.

But that's not how it works really? The entire class advances at once. There is no longer the Valiant 11 class. January - December babies all move forward at the same time. They stay with their peers they've been with from the beginning.

"I have one December baby that was alone in Primary for months before she turned 12."

And now January babies will be alone in Primary for months. It's swings and roundabouts.

This is going to coarse a lot of headaches with kids whose birthdays are in Jan/Feb.

It would have made more sense for the split to be September, and indeed there is an option to do this - but I think it would have to be the country.

I can see people making exceptions.

It's great for the individual. It is not well thought out in my opinion. Thankfully I am not a Bishop and my youngest just turned 16.

Iggy, I don't think we did. It was much more casual than that. But that's a good idea, and in that vein, I know what I'm bringing! Nanaimo bars! And maybe duck breast.

I vote for a potluck. I wasn't here last year I don't think ~ did ya' all include the recipes to the dishes that you brought as well as explain what the dish/dishes meant to you?

Doesn't that cake look good? I see a significant chunk is already missing... Hmm... I wonder what could have happened? :p

Not I, said the Pig.


.

Speaking of which (:D), let's put potluck on top of the list. We could send for a couple of pizzas & also have potluck. The last time V was with us (don't we miss her?), we had a potluck with everyone invited to bring their favorite international foods, or dishes from where they were from or had visited. & she liked that. All Incabitants are welcome to chime in, because this is everyone's party.

Curelom, I vote for either pizza or a potluck, although I'm partial to a potluck.
