Between the two littles, we have spent many years at this sweet school. I am so very thankful for our time here and we will all miss the teachers and staff terribly. Pre-K graduation is a BIG deal here and they go all out for the ceremony! Things kicked off with the Pledge of Allegiance…
The little “show” was adorable. Every graduate participated and did a wonderful job delivering their lines and remembering their songs! It had a Sound of Music theme (one of my top two all time favorite movies) which was just darling.
After the show, the graduates left the room and a slide show set to the most tear-jerking-est music you’ve ever heard played on the big screen. Each parent submitted five pictures from birth to present and they married those with candids of the kids through the year. Oh my! To see my sweet Whit’s baby cheeks on the big screen… it was almost too much :-) Afterwards, it was finally time for the big moment…Whit receiving his diploma!!!
This little pre-k graduation / Honey’s birthday soiree was originally planned for all of our family. Well, when the baby’s tournament ball game put a wrench in those plans, we scaled back to a few Cold Stone ice cream sammies on the porch. The thing about Whit is that when you ask him if he’d rather have a family graduation party or go to his tournament ball game, the answer (as expected) is to play ball. Party wares are from Target’s Oh Joy! collection.
The two men of the day…
After the littles were bathed and in bed, Daddy-O took charge so that Honey and I could sneak out for a last minute birthday dinner of our own! HoOrAy!!!!!!!!
