Well, our Kate is growing up! Last month she graduated from Preschool and this fall she’ll be heading to Kindergarten. She is SO excited to be a big girl now. We have been praying she gets a wonderful teacher and she has a wonderful Kindergarten year!
Her little graduation celebration was so sweet. Last year most of Kate’s classmates graduated (she has a late birthday, so she gets to stay a year longer – woohoo!) and she went to their graduation practices. For the last year she’s been singing what we call the “ABC Song” from their graduation. This year she got to sing it at her own, and I know it’s silly but we almost teared up! We have heard her sing it for so long to celebrate her classmates, and now it was her turn. Those emotions.. my goodness.
Those little preschool and kindergarten graduations get a bad rap I think, but they are special to the kids, and I’m happy they have those celebrations!
Kate’s best buddies Miss Katie and Mr Luke came to see her graduation. I love that we have a little family away from home here. They love on our kids just like family would, and T & K sure do love them back!
Last week I wrote my last check for her preschool tuition, and while I’m THRILLED to not be paying so much money each month .. it was sort of sad that this chapter is closing! Kate has been at her school since she was 2 years old.. since we moved here. It’s all she knows, and I guess it’s all we know. It will be a big adjustment for sure. We are going to miss her teachers SO MUCH!
