Today Andrew had his graduation from Kinderprep. This special little class was a big part of why the past year has been amazing for our family. Eleven kids, one awesome teacher, one wonderful teacher's aide, and many fabulous parents who volunteered time each week to make this last year of preschool extra special and filled with fun & learning.
For graduation today there were no mini graduation caps and gowns or too much hoopla, but the kids sang their little hearts out for parents and grandparents and then received their portfolios from the year along with a simple graduation certificate.
I love seeing how involved the kids were in planning the celebration... from the song list, to the cupcakes, to the beautiful hand-painted tablecloths!
After the kids did their performance and got their certificates, we took pictures and then sat around and had snacks and treats and chatted with friends.
I am going to miss this little class and the friends that both Andrew and I made too! I've loved our playdates and moms nights... which will hopefully continue throughout the summer.
Tomorrow the kids get to enjoy their last day of school with loads of water fun and then we'll kick off our summer vacation. Although we are excited for summer, Andrew is sad to say goodbye to his school and teachers. We are so proud of him and how much he has learned over the past two years at school.
Here is Andrew in preschool on the first day (2011) and here is a photo of Andrew at the end of his Kinderprep year (2013) along with one of his class from this year that I took. What a cute group of kids! Man has Andrew grown up!
