Last week, we celebrated kindergarten graduation. Kindergarten graduation was not even a thing when I was a kid. At least not where I’m from. But these days, it’s not only a thing. It’s a REALLY BIG THING. So big that some highly disgruntled parents nearly revolted over the teachers’ decision to do away with the caps and gowns this year. I have so much I could say about this, but I’ll keep my big mouth shut for once. Well, except this: they’re five! and six! Okay, that’s all. Speaking of the five and six year olds….
I know, right?! Graduation actually was preceded by the kindergarten play. Good gracious it was cute. Carson was a farmer, and I was left praising Jesus at how easy it was to throw some overalls on him as his “costume” and call it a day.
After an intermission and a wardrobe change (it was a loooong night), the graduation ceremony began. This is the best pictorial evidence I have of this portion of the Great Kindergarten Graduation Event of 2014.
Oh and this. The granting of the kindergarten diploma. Listen, I tried, but iPhones can only get me but so far.
These two have become somewhat inseparable this year. I prayed for Carson to develop sweet friendships this year in kindergarten, and God totally answered those prayers.
We have all been unbelievably pleased with how this first year of school has gone. We adore Carson’s school and truly could not have asked for a more perfect fit for Carson and our family.
Carson approached me looking pretty forlorn last week. When I asked what was wrong, he proceeded to tell me how much he’s going to miss school this summer. “But at least I have my workbooks to do!” he added.
That’s my boy.
Oh, and so I can remember these things when Carson’s a hot shot “inginer” one day…
