Pre-School Graduation - by Linz

Last Wednesday Elliott had a pre-school graduation ceremony...complete with caps, gowns, tassels and diplomas! As we were getting ready, I asked Elliott if he was supposed to dress nicely for his graduation. He said, "I don't have to because we have caps and gowns." I have to admit, I was picturing a pre-schooler crafted cardboard cap and something akin to garbage bag for a gown! But these were the real deal!

They all walked out in their tiny gowns and sang a few song for us. It was windy and we couldn't really hear, but the hand motions were very cute! After the songs, they called one by one to recieve their diploma. They were asked to say their names and what they wanted to be when they grow up. Again, it was windy and I couldn't really hear, but from what I gathered, there will be quite a few astronauts and one "bail bond."

To be honest, pre-school graduation is a funny idea to me (it's like they are graduating INTO school) but the kids were so cute and so proud of themselves! They even closed the ceremony by moving the tassels to the other side of their caps!

I have seen it all!

Before you know it you will be at a high school graduation. Now that's a scary thought.
