Last night, Mary Catherine graduated from PreK. The ceremony was so sweet and she looked adorable. It’s hard to believe that this “baby” that we longed for, for so many years, is now ready to start kindergarten.
A year ago, I was contemplating whether or not to send her to kindergarten. I am so glad that I waited; otherwise, Mary would have missed out on an awesome year of letter, number and sight word reinforcement, as well as this memorable graduation ceremony.
Mommy and Daddy are so very proud of you. We know that you are more than ready to tackle the world of kindergarten and will do great things during elementary school!
We love you!
Mary with Mrs. King (L) and Mrs. Davies (R). They enjoyed her so much and you can tell from Mary’s smile that she adored them!
A picture of Mary during the giant slide show. This was Teddy Bear day at school and each child won an award for the most……….bear. Mary’s was voted “softest.”
Don’t you just love their little gowns? They entered to Pomp and Circumstance. As you can see, we got a new hair cut for the occasion…bangs!
The back of the gown…so sweet!
Performing Bible versus and songs with her class. All of these children were kindergarten eligible last Fall, but like Mary, their parents decided to wait. Thus, the small size group.
After Bible versus and songs, the “graduates” exited the church to put on their caps.
Our girl with her diploma! So very proud!!! The Preschool Director read a short sentence about what each child loved best about PreK…Mary’s answer…EVERYTHING, which got quite a chuckle from the crowd. Spoken like a true teacher’s daughter!
So very serious.
Daddy was on-duty last night. Fortunately, a fellow fire fighter was kind enough to trade a few hours with Chris so that he could attend the graduation. Afterwards, we took Mary out to dinner. She wanted McDonalds…we convinced her otherwise! LOL
