Kindergarten Graduation

(lots of pictures ahead)

Ashleigh graduated from Kindergarten this morning! I still think it's strange to have a graduation for Kindergartners, but I guess it's a big thing around here! My mom and dad and Nick's mom came to the graduation! Ashleigh was SO happy that they came...and told me later that she had more people come for her than anyone else in her class! Yay!

The gym decorations...

Cute little graduates

These kids were only absent 6 days or less for the whole year!

The graduates

Ashleigh's whole class...only 19 kids...I love that!

Principal Stone and Mrs. Wyatt...she looks so happy and proud!
After the graduation we went to Ashleigh's classroom to enjoy some cake and visit

We had to get some "typical" graduation pictures

The room-mom presented Ashleigh's teachers with little gifts and flowers. They have been GREAT teachers this year! I can only hope that her teacher next year will be just as good!!!!

Thanks so much to Mom and Dad and Juli for coming and showing Ashleigh your support and love for her! We all really appreciated it!!! Love you!

Cute cute pictures. Ash's school and teacher seem like they're terrific! Glad she's had such a great year.

M didn't have a graduation. I wonder what other schools do it??

On to the first grade!

I am so blessed to be able to at least attend some of my grandchildren's events. Ashleigh is a sweet girl. We are so proud of her. Thanks for inviting me. Love you all so much.

so cute. We don't have a graduation here, they have a day where the parent are invited to see all the things they did this year though, i think a bbq also?
Your hair is cute. I really like the color. Nobody noticed my color change so much, they all thought I got a tan.
