graduation night




Well, the kiddo is finito with school today. Woohoo! Yesterday evening, there was a 'graduation' ceremony for the two kindergarden classes. It was more a end-of-school show than anything else. It was super cute watching these kids sing and do the coordinated moves for each song. It was also pretty dark in the room so my photos & videos didn't turn out so hot. At the end of it all, each child was called down from the stage where they were all sitting (and fidgeting and laughing their heads off) to their teacher on the floor to receive their 'graduation' gift bag. Each child was also described in two words their personality and qualities. Keira was described as "delicate & reserved". Hm. Is that good or bad? I think the delicate part is the way she moves. She'd make a pretty good ballerina! I must admit, in class she does seem more reserved whereas outside of it, she's just.. Keira. Just about everyone seems to like and know this kid, even outside of her grade. lol.

And there you have it. The Keikster finishes toddlerhood and will start next September to the 2nd floor. There are no tears, no time for emotion or reflection right now. Summer officially begins!

That's so sweet! congratulations to Keira and best wishes for the next step :)

It might be a bittersweet thing, isn't it? to see your child growing, going to school. Each time Amelia does something new, I am so extremely happy and cheering and laughing, but in the back of my mind I'm always like: " oh my, she's not my baby anymore!". They grow up so fast...
