It was a bittersweet moment to watch our two kiddies walk out of the door with paper caps and plastic table cloth gowns on for their preschool graduation. They were beaming and were very excited to be showing off for Mommy and Daddy. It was nice to have Daddy take the morning off for such an occasion.
Preschool mornings started off a little rough leaving each other at the top of the stairs as Holly and JD held hands with a high school student to walk through a big school to a little classroom, filled with more students. I will admit, there were a few times I cried leaving JD, he had the hardest time. I knew they were safe and they were having a good time. They came home with crafts, paintings and lots of other things that I didn’t know what to do with. The friendships they developed with the other kids blossomed and now are even better friends than before.
As the student called each preschooler’s name they would go up the stairs and slide down the slide to get their little certificate. JD was so excited he ran up the stairs and flew down the slide, totally missing the girl with the certificates. His cap even flew off in the process and he didn’t want to waste anytime time picking it up! Holly, on the other hand, took her sweet time and daintily walked up the stairs and chose the opposite slide to go down.
The kids were in preschool with some of their best little friends. Aren’t they the cutest?!
After the students received their certificates, the kids were each given an award. JD received the award for ‘most improved’ and Holly received an award for ‘Ms.Giggles.’ Very fitting for both of them!
During the school year the students filled out papers with the kids about their favorite color, animal, where they would go on Vacation and other things and compiled them into a Me Book for each preschooler. It was fun to read their answers to the questions. A nice keepsake from the year.
Now they won’t stop talking about Mrs. Perona’s preschool and wished they were going now!
