Preschool Graduation

Kiree still has another year to go before kindergarten- thanks to a late fall birthday- but she got to "graduate" from preschool this past week.  Kiree was in the four year old class with her buddies headed off to kindergarten in the fall.  Kiree will be attending the preschool at our elementary school this fall, so it was a goodbye for her too.
It was more of a to do than I was expecting.  They had gowns to wear along with caps and stoles the kids made.  Kiree's drew a picture of me feeding Luke on the top of her cap (that's what she told me anyway).

There was a banner in front with silhouettes of all the kids.

Luke and I were the only ones from our family who got to come, Jaide was at school and Bob had something at work.  Luke only cried some of the time.

The kids came in by twos to pomp and circumstance.  Their teacher talked about what they had done that year and shared some of what the kids had said about what they learned from and what they liked about preschool. There were also a few songs performed by the kids.  Each of the kids got called up to receive a certificate. 
After the ceremony we all got to enjoy a sampling of the kids' favorite snacks from throughout the year.  This being a coop school, we had to bring the food.  We brought blueberry muffins.

We will miss them, but not not until after next week.  Kiree is going to be doing a week long camp at the preschool this week.  After Friday, summer vacation begins for everyone!
