Kindergarten Graduation

Yesterday was Alex and Evan's Kindergarten Graduation. I cannot even begin to tell you how happy I am with their first year of elementary school. They had an amazing teacher (Mrs. Barry) and the kids in the class were just wonderful...every single one. I began volunteering weekly back in October, so I have had an opportunity to get to know and love the kids. They are all so nice and polite and I never once saw any one of them being mean to another. So many of them looked forward to being Alex's buddy and yesterday at Graduation when asked what her favorite part of Kindergarten was, Abigayle said being Alex's buddy was. I teared up immediately. They have all grown in their own ways and I feel proud to be a part of their Kindergarten year. I wish the whole class could move onto first grade together, but they can't. So I hope that first grade will be just as good. I cannot believe I will have two first graders after today.

The kids preformed 4 different plays. Alex and Evan were in the same play called Little Red Hen. Evan was the Narrator, Mackenzie was Little Red Hen, Alex was the dog, Aiden was the cat, Alexis was the pig and Lawrence was the duck. They all did such a nice job! Mrs. Polasek sat behind Alex and handed him a machine that when he pressed the button, it said his line for him. He wasn't all into it because he wasn't feeling well. :(

After the plays, the kids left for a minute and came back in with their little caps and each accepted a certificate from Mrs. Barry and she shared with us what their favorite part of Kindergarten was and what they wanted to be when they grow up.

Alex's favorite part of Kindergarten was music in the morning. He wants to be a musician when he grows up.

Evan's favorite part of Kindergarten was play time and playing with his friends. He wants to work at McDonald's when he grows up because he likes making food for people. (LOL!) He is such a character!

After that, we watched a video compilation of the year in pictures. It was really nice!

My Mom and Dad came as well as Eric's Mom and Dad.

We are so proud of both boys. They have had such a great year and grown so much! Hard to believe that our little preemies are going to be 6 years old a month from today and starting first grade in September. Time goes fast so it is important to enjoy every single moment.

Today, is their end of the year party. Unfortunately Alex is home with me this morning because he is not feeling well. I am hoping to take him to the party this afternoon so he can see his friends one last time.
