Kelsey Graduates

Tuesday evening was Kelsey's kindergarten graduation. That has to be one of the sweetest things. It is just so cute to see 5 and 6-year olds in their little caps and gowns. Along with some other songs, they sang a medley of "I Surrender All", and "I'll Say Yes, Lord Yes". That just kind of squeezes your heart, so precious.

She is thrilled to now be considered a first grader and just could not understand why she even had to go back to school for two more days to finish out the year. :-) I told her that the last two days would be all the fun things. The class walked to the park yesterday; played and had popsicles. I'm taking pizza to them today, then they are out for the summer. Khara's last day is next Thursday.

Ready to go to the much anticipated graduation!!

Kelsey with one of her best friends, Ruthanna.

They each wore a sash that told what they wanted to be.

Ready to leave for school this morning, her last day of Kindergarten. I truly think this has been one of the fastest years of my life. :-{

I just got Karson ready for the day so I'll leave you with the happy smiles he's been giving! He's three months old TODAY!!

I loved the pictures. I also like the sash idea...really neat. Looks like she intends to follow in the footsteps of her aunts/uncle!? I'm amazed at their medley of songs...I thought they attended public school.?

Nancy-- Acutally Kelsey went to a Christian School. After kindergarten I move them to the public. We have a pretty good public school system, thankfully, but the mental pic. of them all singing "I Surrender All", etc. made me smile. :-)
