Preschool Graduation Song revisited

In case you didn't understand the words in the group song from graduation, here is Katie performing an encore at home, complete with the proper attitude.  Enjoy! :)

Kindergarten addendum

Last night at dinner after her first day of Kindergarten (which she loved, by the way), Katie informed me that she didn't want me to just be at the bus stop and pick her up.  She wanted to just run home down the street.  Really?! I'm being banished from the bus stop on the first day of Kindergarten?!?  She was sad to learn that our school district requires that all Kindergarten and 1st graders have an adult pick them up at the bus stop every day.  If a known adult isn't there, they will return the student to the school and call the parents from there.  She's stuck with me for awhile, even though, "Other Kindergarten and 1st graders were just going to their houses!"

It's official...

I am the mother of a Kindergartner.

Leaving the house with her packed backpack.

Waiting at the bus stop.  We made it in time!

There she goes!  Her first bus ride off to a new adventure.

Good luck Baby Girl.

Preschool Graduation

Lest you think that I only have one child, let me brag on my other one for a little bit.  A few months ago, I realized, after my friends had posted about it, that I needed to register Katie for Kindergarten.  Kindergarten.  Like, real school.

Wow.  How did we get from here... here!?!

Attending Kindergarten orientation was surreal.  It just doesn't feel like this stage of her life could be over that fast!  Her teachers told her that they had to sing loudly so that the parents would cry.  I am here to admit that I balled the whole time.  Here are my favorite graduation memories:

Here is the video of my favorite graduation song ever.  It was hilarious and I still love hearing her sing it. :)

We forgot to take any family pics of Katie in the graduation robe while we were at school so we borrowed one of the robes and took some pics in our backyard.

How grown up she looks!  

Katie loves her little brother!

Me and my kiddos.

 A rare family picture.

 The girl I am truly sending off to Kindergarten...TOMORROW!  (Do you think we should warn the teachers...?)

Love you my special girl!
