I was not sure what to expect of a Pre-K ‘graduation’ and the school did not tell us much. We went in just hoping for a nice celebration. And of course Christopher wanted to dress appropriately for this special occasion. By that I mean, he wanted to wear a suit. Thankfully I found a suit jacket at Walmart for $17 so I couldn’t help but make the child happy and let him look his best.
Isn’t he so handsome???
We got to school and as we waited to go inside I was able to grab a few pics of him and his school friends. He tends to be quite popular with the ladies…
As we sat in out seats in the hot, un-airconditioned gymnasium, my heart melted as I saw him walk in in his cap and t-shirt. In my mind I was just thinking that it is not going to be long before this is his high school graduation. I need to cherish everyday because the days, weeks and years are just flying by.
For 45 minutes we sat and listened as they sang and sang and sang. Some of the songs had lyrics where ‘the child was talking to their parent’ and as they sang, they pointed to us. That put the lump in my throat. I held back my tears and tried to keep it together.
After the singing was over, they received their ‘diploma.’ Christopher’s face lit up as they called his name. I was so proud of my 5 year old…LOL!
When it was over we said goodbye to his teachers and thanked them for a job well done. We gave them the presents we had made for them (see them on the chairs??) and handed out the goodies to his classmates.
We stayed for a few more pictures and off we went….ready for Kindergarten!!
Happy Hump Day…
