Well, more like twelve weeks.
But for Little Kid, preschool wrapped up this week. I did not cry, but Miss Tenderhearted did. Bless her sweet heart, all of her friends are scattering to different elementary schools and she was sad. I reassured her that she had two buddies that would be going to kindergarten with her and she will see most of her girlfriends at dance class in the fall. Once again I am thankful for facebook, and that we can keep up with friends and teachers that we love.
First day of preschool, August 2009:
Last day of preschool, May 2013:
I can remember buying that little purple and green outfit at Baby Gap right after we moved to Huntsville. We had only lived here for a little over a month when the kids started school. I splurged on the matching striped shoes because it was her first day of school ever!
First day of Pre-K, August 2012:
I love comparison photos.
Pre-K graduation program:
We had the best teachers this year. Alexa's teachers, Ms. Amy and Ms. Lisa, were wonderful.
The whole four years at Asbury were a blessing to our family. Ms. Rosemary, Ms. Marlee, and Ms. Kathryn in the main office...Ms. Sue in the library...Ms. Karen the music teacher and all of Little Kid's teachers over the years have been such caring, nurturing souls. We love them and thank them.
Sweeties on the last day. The two boys on the right have been with Little Kid since Day 1.
Little Kid and I went up to help with her brother's class party yesterday. Oh my. Let's just say that they were enthusiastic about the upcoming summer.
Our class mom made a life-size Angry Birds game for the kids!
Someone was very excited to sit with the big kids. Little Kid is so ready for kindergarten, she would go tomorrow if she could. I wish that I got a pic of Big Kid's teacher who is lovely and so kind, but it was a little crazy in there (and when I say little, I mean pandemonium). How such a tiny lady kept control of that motley crew I have no idea, but she did! Teachers have nerves of steel. The boy had a good year, thank you Mrs. Williams!
Big Kid's first day of third grade, August 2012:
Last day of third grade, May 2013:
He insisted on posing with his two certificates. He won the class, "Super Scientist" award. He gets that from me.
And because it is Thursday and we have not done a T4T yet this week, I thought that this was appropriate. Any child of the nineties will recognize it.
Let summer commence!
