Goodbye Kindergarten

And she learnt so very much more!

This might be one of those #sorrynotsorry #favouritenotfavourite posts. My sweet girl graduated this week and there were some  tears, some very special smiles and some proud moments--- all mine of course.

Here's her last day at school in pictures

(but first, here's her first day of school here)

And her last

Her first 'job'

One of her lasts. She's made so many friends!

I sneaked off to A's class to watch her circle time as well.

I was a parent volunteer for the bowling- their little activity of the day. There was bowling, dancing and lots of glow in the dark shaking. 

Then back to A's class where she said goodbye to her teachers. We will miss them so much.

During the graduation ceremony. Cassia had a 'line' in the poem. She was the only kid to do a very large curtsy after. 

And she's graduated!

Before we left, this teacher gave Cassia the biggest hug and told her it was such a pleasure to teach her and watch her learn. She then said to me that there are some children who especially touch your heart and she really enjoyed watching Cassia learn and work so hard. I might have brought out the mama tears around then. 

The graduating class of 2027!
(well 4 of them anyways)

And then it was time for some celebratory pasta. 

Followed by a little celebratory balancing. 

And finally a little downtime, snuggles and chats about summer plans.

And just 'cause, here was the first morning of school

And the last!

We are so proud of our grown up girl. Proud of how much she's learnt and grown. And most of all love that she has blossomed into a happy, cheerful, kind, well-adjusted kid. We're so excited for what the future holds for her!

  10. The area that I grew up in Los Angeles, I could honestly say that I was lucky to find such a good Phoenix preschool for my daughter. I had quite a head ache when I realized I had to enroll my child in a daycare.


Hearing from you makes me so happy!!
