Graduation? For Preschoolers?

Life is so different here. In Alaska, there isn't a graduation ceremony for preschoolers, but here, there is. Cap, gown, flowers, ceremony and all the other details that go into a graduation. First I must say, I can't believe my baby is 5 YEARS OLD and 'graduating' to Kindergarten!

Where has the time gone? I was always warned to savor the moments as it would vanish before your very eyes, but my goodness, nobody said at the speed of light!

Amanda was sick the week the pictures were taken, however, she was feeling pretty good picture day, so I took her in just for the pictures. As she was dressed in her royal blue cap & gown, the lady said "what do you think, mom"? As Amanda turned around, I felt the tears welling up. WOW! She looks SO grown up! Right then & there, I saw infant to 5 year old in a matter of 1.2 seconds!

I received the proof last week and although her eyes could have been a little more open, I'm still blown away at this whole process of preschool graduation!

And...just in case you need a little reminder...

I can't believe how big she is getting!! I wish our school district did something like that. She is way too cute!! I think you guys need a trip to Ohio so her and Jamie can meet. =)
