Jane, the graduate

Jane's preschool does a cute graduation ceremony for the kids going on to kindergarten. Jay and I were both lucky to be able to attend. Here is Jane with her two teachers, Miss Melissa (on the left) and the teacher assistant Miss Lilly (on the right).


After the passing out of diplomas the kids sang a little graduation song.



After the ceremony they had a reception for the kids. Here's Jane and her Daddy...




Jane and her friend Kieren enjoying their cake.


Doesn't she look so grown up? Like Jay says, "She's our little big girl."


On a side note: The one not so good part of the day was a little boy who happened to be standing next to Jane starting screaming at her in the middle of the ceremony that he didn't want to stand next to her like 6 or 7 times he is screaming at her in front of all of the teachers, parents, and kids. Trust me it was everything I could do to not go up there and rip that child off the stage and give him "a talking to". Jane was AWESOME though she just looked at him and held her head high and just blew it off like no big deal. Then when the child was moved away from her he started choking, YES CHOKING, the kid next to him and after it was all said and done there was NO apology for that little... ahem... boy embarrassing my child in the middle of her graduation ceremony and taking the focus off the special event onto this kid. Jane's teacher was very apologetic and even wrote us a note that day apologizing profusely, which is all well and good but who I really wanted an apology from was the child's mother. I couldn't be more proud of Jane though for keeping her cool and not getting upset by it (like her mother did!). I could cry with pride!

She handled herself like such a mature little girl! :) I can't believe she's already finished with PK and on her way to K! I can't wait to hear how her 1st year at Wilshire goes!
