Quinn Graduates Kindergarten!

Friday, May 31st was the day that my big boy graduated from Kindergarten! And, surprisingly enough, I wasn’t sad at all! Sure, his graduation picture could send me into a puddle of tears, but the actual event was nothing but excitement for me! Preschool graduation was a different story for me…the end of a precious “Endless Summer” season of our lives…But, Kindergarten Graduation is just a wonderful celebration that says, “HE DID IT!” And, I DID IT!! We {almost} survived his first year of big boy school!
Of course, we had to have a little celebratory breakfast before school that morning…Kinder Graduation 001And, a little photo shoot…
He knows the drill!

At 8:30, ThePoeFam went to his classroom for a little classroom awards presentation! It was so special that Mrs. Bates took the time to truly spotlight each child and tell everyone about their “unique impression!” One proud Momma, right here!!

Then, we headed to the gym for the actual gradation cermemony. We killed time while trying to entertain this little wiggle worm before it began at 9:30.

And, then, it was his turn to shine. We are so very proud of our big, Kindergarten Graduate. The way he spotted us in the crowd right away melted my heart! {P.S. I need a zoom lens!}

And, then, we proudly watched as he sang his little heart out. Afterwards, he said…”I watched you almost the whole song, Momma…and, I could tell you were about to cry!”

After the ceremony, we got a family picture outside before we took Quinn out of school early and had a day to celebrate him. Lunch at his choice, “Old McDonald’s,” shopping for sussies, new shoes and more! Then, after a swim, we ended the day with a super fun dinner at a local airplane runway! Cool, for sure!

Happy Kindergarten Graduation to my sweet love! I adore you and your family couldn’t be more proud to call you OURS!
