Preschool Graduate!!

So the oldest "graduated" from preschool!!! I have been saying for quite some time that although I would LOVE for my girls to stay baby's I have thoroughly enjoyed each new phase they enter......I'd be lying though if I said I love the fits/crying that accompany them!!! I have known all along that Jon will most likely cry when we take her to her 1st day of Kindergarten and I have been most sure that I will be OK!! Well NOT so sure about that now.......I balled my eyes out thru most of the program, reminded that Kayden is growing far to quickly. Some of these kids have grown up together and so for that reason too it is going to be sad to say good-bye at the end of the summer. They sang songs, recited the Pledge of Allegiance, received their "diploma's", and watched a slideshow of all the fun they have had together over the past few years.....this is when I had to steal Emery's blanket to soak up my tears.  I LOVE her teacher Ms Karen....I've said this a million times and I will say it again in 2 years when Emery joins her.....she loves/adores these kids like they are her own. She was crying as much as the parents were. She has done an awesome job of teaching these kids in fun ways and Kayden is MOST excited about starting Kindergarten in August!!! 

Singing one of their favorite songs "Tootie  Ta".....by the end the song (pictured below) their elbows out, knees together, eyes closed, turning in circles, bottoms out, and tongues sticking out while singing the whole song!!! Hilarious!!
Receiving her diploma
Ms Karen and Ms Jordan
We then headed back to E-kids where they had "Prom" for the kids.....they had a blast dancing, laughing, eating, and more laughing....the "night away"!!

All the frogs presented these frames to their teachers as a small thank you (it's hard to see with the picture but they spell out Ms Karen and Jordan). These are great gifts......I found the pictures here and then had them framed at Hobby Lobby (where they have lots of 50% off sales) and the teachers LOVED them!

What an adorable little graduate! I can't believe she'll be in Kindergarten next year. :(
I loved seeing that they did "Tootie Ta", that's one of Sophie's very favorites!
And great idea for the teachers; I'll have to remember that!

The boys sing "tootie ta", but only in short bursts and I've never heard the whole thing. Maybe Kayden can teach me sometime.

She is a beautiful girl Kera! It makes me happy seeing her smile, cause she looks so much like you!

Be strong mama! We'll get through this sad time!! I'm living more in the moment!
