Another Milestone Passed…

Standard

About 10 years ago I always thought that graduation ceremonies from Kindergarten and Preschool … well they were just silly; especially preschool! I mean when I graduated from high school I had accomplished a lot including surviving 12 or so years of school! That’s a big thing when you are 18 or 19. Preschoolers or kindergarteners have learned their ABC’s really well and some basic math and PLAYED a LOT!

The Princess all those days ago at the beginning of school!

The Princess helped me change my mind this year as she has with so many other things since she came along. Preschool graduation reminded me a lot of her first birthday. She had no idea what was going on and although she wasn’t adverse to chocolate icing (you could keep the cake thank you very much!) the first birthday was just a breath of relief for me and my husband as parents. We had made it through the first year!

I feel like I accomplished something when she graduated from Preschool. Those 180 days of getting up and getting dressed and out the door–that is HUGE. Especially when 45 days or so of that were sick days and we didn’t make it out the door, but we did stay home and practice learning to blow noses. (At one point during the year she wouldn’t blow her nose unless I was blowing mine at the same time!) And those first best buddies that the Princess made and the fact that I got to be good friends with their moms was also something that I didn’t expect, but was a wonderful addition to our preschool experience.

So the Princess’ accomplishments after the first year:
-She is well versed in her ABC’s
-She can count to 100 (as long as you don’t ask her to!)
-She can get dressed and put shoes on by herself (one of my favorites!)
-She has learned to say stop please when someone is doing something she doesn’t like (instead of screaming!)
-She has learned to play well with others

Plus so many other things! I can’t believe how much she has grown physically, academically, and spiritually throughout the past year and I am super proud of her accomplishments.

I won’t say that I don’t dread the end of school, but I am also looking forward to a break with some schedule wiggle room. Here’s to a fun-filled learning experience and a wonderful summer!

I thought it would be cool to take a picture of the last day of school. However, when I said it was the last day the Princess was sad because she doesn't want school to end.

So I said the end of school means going to the beach and she immediately got down on the floor and started swimming!
