:: Last day of kindergarten!

It seems like just yesterday that I blogged about C's first day of kindergarten, and now it's the last.  The year went by so crazy fast!

The day started with me taking C to school...and his clean and sparkly classroom.  Yesterday the kids cleaned up their desks and floors...bringing home broken crayons, pencil stubs, and anything that had their name written on it.  I thought I'd be the strong mom type who would smirk at the moms crying over this seemingly minor milestone, but I'm afraid I joined them instead.  I was super emotional seeing C run up to his friends and his teacher for the last time...knowing that he was no longer a little helpless kindergartner.  No, he's a first grader now, where they don't nap (this is the thing C is most intrigued about).  Not too long from now another group of fresh-faced "babies" will sit at those desks.  And so it goes.

Anyway, the kindergartners had their graduation ceremony later that morning.  We got into our seats with all the parents and grandparents and watched the kids recite all they knew about math, presidents, continents, oceans, countries, and counting.  They counted from 1-10 in different languages that included Spanish, French, German, Japanese, and Swahili(!).  I'm super proud of C, he's done an amazing job this past year.

That's the school principal giving C his "diploma".
The aforementioned "diploma".  C also received a ribbon earlier in the week at an awards ceremony.  The award was the "Principal's Award of Respect", which was given to only one child from each class.
So proud! :)

 Here's C with some of his good friends:
After the kids changed out of their caps & gowns, we all headed to a nearby park to celebrate with the families.  There I got a few more shots of C with his friends...
And of course his teacher, who really did an incredible job with all the kids.  
Thank you Mrs. S! :)

  4. I am so happy that C and G are friends. While they may be a little mischievous together, I think it works out okay in the end. You have a very very sweet little boy.
