Kindergarten Graduation

I was the proud mom in the front center row at Kindergarten Graduation. My heart was so full of love and pride looking at my little man. My heart spilled  over when they sang Let Us Be Little. Tears streaming down my face, I looked over at my mom and she too had tears flowing. My husband in the middle was just smiling big. It really is amazing how fast time goes. Number #1 thing I didn't like about graduation, no graduation caps and gowns:(

So sweet. Congrats to your son on his kindergarten graduation. You're right, it'd be nice if they were able to have caps and gown for the occasion.

I love Kindergarten graduation...so many memories. My boys are now teenagers and it seems so long ago. What a great time to be a mom.

My son will be one in a few days and I cannot believe how this year has flown by. I know I will cry when he reaches kindergarten and especially once he graduates from it. :)

I was a Preschool Teacher for 15 years and we used to make caps and enlist parents to help make gowns. It was so easy to do. Too bad they did not try it.

our kindergarten didn't have caps and gowns either. the only graduation so far that had caps was 6th grade graduation, no gowns though.

Joanne Gentry said...

Aw what a special day for you and your husband as well as your child. I would have been right there with tears in my eyes too. I was a preschool teacher for many many years and those graduation days were so special!

So great seeing them on that stage, isn't it! We had caps and gowns at ours...just for the last part where they got "diplomas". Very cute.

Our school system doesn't have a graduation ceremony until high school. I wish they had the little ones for me to remember. Only one more year to go and then both my kids will be in high school though. Sigh....

Please accept my heartfelt CONGRATULATIONS! These moments and milestones - so precious and fleeting - must be savored and celebrated in memorable ways.

(And try not to let the lack of caps and gowns dampen your day or spirit : everything you need is already engraved on your heart and singing in your spirit!

It never ceases to amaze - how fast the time goes and even faster how the little ones grow!

Please savor and enjoy every moment! And again congratulations!
