Caps & Gowns

I never thought "Kindergarten Graduation" was a big deal. Not until today, that is. Not until my little girl was one of those Kindergarten graduates.

Sarah's elementary school owns caps and gowns sized for 5 and 6 year-olds. It was the cutest graduation I have ever seen. Ever. By far.

They recited a Kindergarten poem, sang the alphabet and signed it in sign language. Sarah was practicing all week, and quite disappointed that I couldn't help her with the letters she forgot the signs for.

Sarah's teacher, Mrs. Beeby, was an answer to our prayers! Her pre-K teacher was... less than stellar I'll say. This year was a completely different story. Sarah was thrilled to go to school and happy when she got home. I know a huge part of that had to do with Mrs. Beeby.

From the very first day of school, Sarah has talked about her friends. This little group of girls had been friends for a while, but were so sweet to take Sarah into their group and make her feel involved. She never once felt left out, and I know at that age that is a big deal. Love these little people!

K is for Kindergarten - hip, hip, hooray!
I is for imagination we use everyday.
N is for numbers - we know one, two three.
D is for drawing, the best you can see!
E is for exercise to keep our bodies strong.
R is for reading books all day long.
G is for good friends. We made more each day.
A is for the alphabet we know how to say.
R is for remembering everything we learned.
T is for treats every Friday we earned.
E is for excitement. This year we've had some.
N is for next year. First grade here we come!
