our preschool graduate

The shirts they are wearing are adorable!
Each classmate put their hand print on a white t-shirt in a different color.
I think it makes a great keepsake :)

The graduation ceremony last night was so cute!
The kids did great standing in front of us singing and dancing.
Layla told me she was proud of everyone in her class for not getting stage fright.
I didn't even know she knew what stage fright was...teehee!

When we walked into the church one of her teachers greeted me with a package of tissues with a sweet poem attached. I still haven't read the poem in full. I'm afraid it will make me cry.
Gary said the poem is cute and that I should frame it. Maybe one day I'll read it! Silly me :)

Above is a picture of LK on the 1st day of school.

Below of course is the last day of school.
Taken yesterday.

Wow...she looks a bit more sassy to me.

I am surprised the backpack and lunch box made it through the year.

Layla is very proud to say that she is now a kindergartener!!

I can't believe how much she grew over the year! I always got teared up when my preschoolers would graduate at the end of the year, time goes so fast!

L said...

She does look sassy! Is it the new haircut? Heehe. Congrats to the now big kindergartener :)

That is too funny about you and the poem :) That shirt is going to be so teeny and tiny and even more adorable in 10 years can you imagine!

Oh so much fun. So happy you included both pics. You can see how much she changed. Her face isn't a baby face anymore. :( Drew is so excited to start preschool next yr.

Awwww! This makes me miss teaching Pre-K/Kindergarten so much. She is a cute little sassy thing for sure! Love the cute shirts they made too.

Carrie said...

She wouldn't let me get a pic today..but I hope she changes her mind :) I love the pictures, she's so cute! Next year will be so sad :)
