Pomp and Preschoolers
It's official folks. My little girl is finished with preschool. Her last summer of freedom has officially been kicked off before she trots off to Kindergarten in the fall with the big kids.
Last night we all gathered under the picnic shelter at Sorosis Park here in town (I know the name is weird, I recently learned that it has something to do with the cherry processing process....more info to come soon after some google searches) and we watched our adorable kiddos don their adorable tasselled caps and receive their awards for their successful completion of preschool. Each solemn child accepted his or her "diploma" with huge smiles to lots of applause and flashing cameras. Then we all enjoyed cupcakes and hugs and played at the park because really, what else would you do after a graduation ceremony?
Kbear was also the recipient of the "Leadership Award." And not for her stellar good Samaritan ways....not for her upstanding citizen-like behavior....but because (according to Teacher Mary) "the rest of the children would follow her anywhere. She could lead a mutiny."
That's my girl.
