Graduation Day

Well, graduation day has come and gone, and I made it through without any tears.

Kendall was very excited to get all dressed up for her ceremony, and even more tickled that Daddy brought her a pink rose. The kids showed us their stuff right from the beginning, saying the Pledge of Allegiance and singing God Bless America...complete with hand motions. (No, I don't have any pictures of that, since I was running the camcorder, and Barry was busy wrangling Noah.) They sang a couple of other songs and recited a Bible verse before the diplomas were handed out. They even wore graduation caps, as you can see in the pictures.

How cute....that is all I can say.

How stinkin' cute.

They were all so excited and proud of themselves. Afterward, they had cookies and punch, but we tried to reign ourselves in, as Kendall had requested a trip to get ice cream when we were done. Noah was all about the ice cream, let me tell you. We jetted over to Handel's (not my favorite, but it would do) and made little piggies of ourselves.

I can't believe she's done with preschool.

I can't believe she's starting kindergarten in the fall.

My goodness...she is growing up way too fast, and I'm starting to feel a bit sad. I'm trying to think of all the fun and important things we've been able to do, and not dwell on the things we haven't. All in all, I think we've done pretty well. She is an exraordinary little girl, and I couldn't be more proud of her.

Life goes way too fast, so I guess I'd just better sit back and enjoy all the "little" moments like these. If you've heard it once, you've heard it a million times....

She's 5 going on 15! I can't believe how mature and ladylike she looks!
