The Preschool Graduate!

In reading some other "Mombloggers" (Scary Mommy, My Suitcase Full of Tricks) there seems to be this general consensus that the idea of a preschool graduation, at first, sounds a little absurd. But then you get there and you're all, "That's my baby! Go baby!" And you're happy and proud and taking photos just like all the other crazy parents. Darn kids.

The reason I think even something that seems small in the grand scheme of things IS important, is because it's about celebrating accomplishments.  It's about celebrating LIFE.  And by holding a little graduation ceremony for preschoolers, we're showing them this.  That milestones matter, that they matter, that we love them and we're proud of them.  It's never too early to show our kids those things!

For me, AJ is my last child, therefor this was my last preschool graduation.  At least until perhaps he or his sister have children and they graduate preschool.  My little boy is a Kindergartner already!  Why did his first 5 years go by so much faster than Cami's?  I swear the love and pride I feel for my kids could fill the universe!  On a good day that is.... LOL

And now for your viewing pleasure I present a pictorial of AJ's Pre-K year:

First day of school
A masterpiece

Snow day!

That's my boy!
