Congratulations Class of 2014

Welp, that's's out for the summer!!!  Actually its been out, I'm just super late writing about it. :(  HAHAHA

The school year came and went.  This was Sweet Pea's last year of preschool.  I officially have a kindergartner!!!  Where does the time go?  Anyway, this end of school year was pretty eventful...preschool graduation. I always thought it was kinda funny seeing those lil kids with cute little caps getting their certificates.  I don't remember my last day of preschool being so cool.  I just remember it all of a sudden being summer and I didn't have to wake up early.

Amelia's school held a promotion and graduation for the whole school.  She was super excited about it.  I remember her telling me mid-May about them practicing for their graduation.  She was def pumped about it, as she should be!! I thought the ceremony was very cute.  All the kids were dressed up in their Sunday's best and the Discovers class (ages 4-5 Amelia's Class)  all had little caps on. {I DIE}  I was taking pics left and right, filling up my SD card. All the classes did a performance and then each class handed out some awards.  Amelia got most dependable.  I'm not sure what to make of that.  Haha  She looked so proud getting it, I couldn't help but beam with excitement for her.  Once again, taking a million pics.  Then came the certificate ceremony, when the graduating class got their certificates.  I lost it.  I honestly, didn't think I was going to.  I thought, hey this is a cute ceremony, but its no biggie.  I was totally wrong.  I know I probably sound crazy.  Seeing her get her lil certificate, it hit me like a ton of bricks, I don't have a lil toddler anymore, let alone my lil baby girl.  She is a full blown kid.  I remember when she was only hours old, trying to picture her growing up, it felt like a lifetime away.  {I'm even tearing up writing this, I'm such a sap!}

I laughed at the notion of a ceremony for preschool before, but now I get it.  The ceremony isn't for the kids, its for the parents.  Every parent in that room had nothing but smiles on their faces and their cameras and iphones rolling.  The school didn't have to do that, it was a great gesture and memory for the parents to keep with them forever.  The whole ceremony was over the top, but I think it was well worth it.  Well, here is to the class of 2014 :)
