Kindergarten Graduation Day was a day of fun for Andrew's class. They all had matching T-Shirts that went with their "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom theme. We played games outside, had a Chicka Chicka Boom Boom party, and got the Gym all decorated.
Each child was to make a "mini me" character and they were all posted on the wall with the first letter of their name above it (like the book has all the letters scattered around)
Then it was time for the big event that evening. I was so nervous for Andrew (and hoping the little kids would behave so I could enjoy it) but the Kindergartners all did fantastic (and the little kids were great too) so I need not have worried. Andrew nailed his little line and sang all the songs. He HATED the silly hats they had to wear (can't say I blame him) but did great.
Then it was into caps and gowns for the diplomas. Be still my heart . . . visions of this ceremony again in 12 short years!!! :-(
I wish this wasn't blurry . . . I need a new camera . . LOVE this little look he is giving here. So proud of himself and showing us his diploma. Love it!
And of course the pictures with everyone . . . so blessed that both sets of grandparents were able to be here for his big day!
He was also awarded a Reading Award, Faithful Attendance, Straight A Honor Roll, and the Presidential Achievement Award. So proud of you Andrew!
Thanks also to his grandparents for the graduation bear and $ toward the Lego Movie and his first big boy Bible (even engraved with his name).
At the same time he graduated in school he also graduated out of his old Sunday School Class. While this may not be a huge big deal most of the time this year was exceptionally difficult for us. Ms. Lena has been Andrews teacher since his first day in Sunday school when he turned 2. When the time came for him to move up she just moved up with him! This year he moves on to a new teacher though --- a move that was very emotional for us and her. We love you Ms. Lena.
First Day with Ms. Lena . . . 4 years ago!
