(sigh)

I didn't think it would be so emotional, really.


Jack, entering the MPR.My view...can you see Jack?
Me neither...so, I went "backstage" to get a better shot......and got this one :)Getting his certificate.Mommy and JackDaddy and JackAlmost a perfect family picture...just missing Molly!Nana came, too. She and Jack had a special afternoon after graduation.Miss Joo...we love you!Finding his name on the graduation shirts.
See...the kids sing a little song...it goes like this:
"Kindergarten's over, and now we're going home.
Goodbye, goodbye, we're going to first grade"
And we have sang the same song for the whole 5 years I have been
teaching Kindergarten.
But, this year, it was different.
My BABY was singing it...
and we practiced all the songs when he took a bath last night.
And after the graduation, Jack asked:
"Are you proud of me for being a first grader now?"
If he only knew...

As we were walking to my car Jack said, "So, Nana, NEXT year I'm going to graduate from first grade, then second grade." I don't think he really believed me when I said that he probably wouldn't get to do the same kind of group celebration until at LEAST the end of 6th. What a letdown, huh?
