The end of the year brought with it many festivities, culminating with kindergarten graduation today.
Our family gathered to watch Clare graduate.
I remember at the beginning of the year being nervous about so many things with kindergarten. It was a whole new world for Clare and for our family. It didn't take long for those nerves to be put to rest. Clare has had a great year. She has learned and grown so much! She knows the lay of the land and tromps around the school like she owns the place.
Here she is with two of her classmates. She has made some good friends this year.
Everyone in Clare's class signed each other's caps. What a cute idea!
I think Clare liked it too, because she wore that thing around all day!
Earlier this week Clare received awards for perfect attendance and being a "happy helper."
Jane and Sydney already think they are ready for kindergarten.
Soon enough, my dears, soon enough.
If this year is any indication of how fast the school years go, it won't be long before we are hearing "Pomp and Circumstance" in 2024! If I think about that for too long, my heart grows heavy. So for now, I will just make sure Clare knows exactly how proud we are of her....and get ready for SUMMERTIME!
