KinderCare graduation today

The Small Man graduated from preschool today.
Yes, he's adorable.

There were musical numbers, including all kinds of hand movements.

I think in this one, they were signing the letters for "Alligators All Around."

As they handed out diplomas, Ms. Nadine asked each kid "What do you want to be when you grow up?" Small Man was first, and said "FIREFIGHTER!" (He changes his mind on an hourly basis, mind you.) The girls were pretty consistent - teachers, doctors, ballerinas, princesses. One "gymnastics girl," one "painter," and one "singer." The boys had a core of testosterone-fueled professions (another firefighter, policeman, soldier, cowboy, etc.) but were also WAY more creative. "Spaceman." "Pizza Man." "Superhero." And my personal favorite: "METAL DETECTOR!"

One more week, then (as I'm told two or three times a day) the SUMMER BASH on Friday, and then NO MORE KINDERCARE PAYMENTS!!

How adorable. The preschool my daughter went to did not do a graduation... and at my sons the kids did not get to speak or dress in gowns. I was so looking forward to it!

Metal detector ~Love it!
