Kindergarten Graduation!


A momentous day as four kindergarten classes graduated. There was a solemn procession in to the tune of "Land of Hope and Glory," there were songs by the different classes, and there was the awarding of certificates and medals.  The gym was full of folks, cheering on their particular kids. (I was in the middle of the third or fourth row and trying to get pictures between the heads and phones of the folks in front of me. Some of the last few pics are from Claui's cell phone and from Grandma Namcy's camera.)

Josie is sad to leave kindergarten and especially her beloved Miz V, but she's looking forward to first grade too--as well as a summer full of fun.

                                   Josie adores Miz V.

Gosh, time flies! What a wonderful celebration this is. I love that 'formal' graduation photo. One to keep until she gets her first university degree and can put both side by side!

A momentous day indeed! Please give Josie my congratulations on graduating and tell her that I am proud of her and happy to be her friend. The photos are marvelous, especially the one of her clutching her certificate. Definitely one to keep for her own children someday! 💗

I agree with Sandra Parshall -- that last photo had me smiling out loud (as it were). Don't ever lose your curiosity and your love for learning, young Josie. Knowledge is never wasted, even when it is deemed trivial and useless to others. It will always serve to illuminate the world around you and make it so much more interesting.

Great pictures, anad what a novel idea! I don't think I've ever heard of a Kindergarten class going through a graduation ceremony. What a nice share.
