Now, my overall attitude when it comes to an hour long ceremony dedicated to the ushering in of Kindergarten (at our kids' bedtime no less) isn't going to win me any positive thinking awards. All these things really do is get parents weepy about how quickly our children are growing up. As if we need to be reminded.
But, what are you gonna do but show up, enjoy the cuteness, and blog about it?
We were at the venue 20 minutes early. Knox spied the stage and proceeded to get the party started himself.
Lakey had a snack, so of course she was content to watch the sideshow.
Finally, the Pre-K 1 class opened up with a performance.
Miles knew every word to his class song, Dynamite by Taio Cruz (the KidzBop version), but he was too busy smiling at us to actually sing or do the motions with his class. My first wave of pride hit at this point though, because just last December when his class did their school carolling for the parents, he stood there and sobbed for the duration of the song. So the fact that he wasn't scared to death was a big step for him!
Then it was time for him to receive his graduation diploma. He ran. Wave of pride numero dos.
Knox watched intently from his chair. Most of the time he was smiling. I think he was proud of his brother.
