Preschool graduation: The dress rehearsal

I posted a while back about not being sure if we should send Peanut to kindergarten next year or not.

In the end, it came down to this: she won't be 5 until August, and better than half of the kids in next year's kindergarten class will be 6, 6.5, and even a couple of nearly 7-year-olds. So we enrolled her in Transitional Kindergarten (a.k.a. Pre-K) in her preschool.

However, about half of her class is moving on to kindergarten. So you know what that means? Graduation. Complete with caps, gowns (mens shirts worn backwards), tassles and even the playing of Pomp and Circumstance.

So this year was practice graduation for her (and me. Yes, I got a little teary. Yes, I am a ridiculous sap.)

The very serious graduate


Loaf's class had a role too: singing about a turtle in the bathtub who eats the soap and gets sick. Which has to do with graduation . . . how? No idea. If you figure it out let me know.


Now the graduates get ready to sing a cute song about being really happy to be here.


Loaf, however, does not look too happy to be here. At. All.


Loaf is thinking, "When is this frickin' thing going to be over?? I want to go home."

The proud graduate after the ceremony


A very proud Mom and Dad (even though we'll be doing this all over again when she REALLY graduates next year). ::sigh::

Those were great shots! Your family is very good looking. Even when bored stiff by practice graduations!

Caps and gowns! So adorable. I got teary and the preschool graduations for my kids, too. It's impossible not to cry a little.

Awww, so sweet! But, are they wearing men's dress shirts backwards?
