Preschool Graduation

Last night was Clayton's end of the year preschool program and his preschool graduation. Oh my word, y'all, I don't know how much more of this growing up that my heart can handle...

Doesn't he look so grown up in that cap and gown??? In my mind, this picture makes me fast forward to 2023 and I can just imagine my sweet little Love at his High School Graduation. Sniffle, sniffle.

Okay, okay, back to 2010 and preschool graduation...

It was a sweet little program, and Clayton did a great job. I was so proud of my boy! His precious teachers & the preschool staff worked so hard to put on a wonderful performance. It was a memorable night, for sure.

Clayton's class sang a song called, "Absolutely Nothing" based on Romans 8:39. It was cute! You'll see this in the video, but he made a funny face and said something in between the verse and the song. I asked him about it later and he filled me in with, "I said, 'Cue the Music!'" Ha ha! Funny boy. He also told his teachers that he wants to be a scientist when he grows up. What??? That's news to me! It would make his science nerd Mama very happy, though. ;)

Clayton held the final hand motion for a really long time. So funny!

Getting his "diploma"

Here's the full video, for your viewing pleasure. :)

I was really worried about how Drew would do for 1 1/2 hours during the program. I panicked at the last minute and almost called a babysitter. But, Sweet Boy did so good! He sat in his little seat and colored with Grammie.

He also ate his weight in puffs! He almost ate a whole can! But, he was quiet, and that was the goal. :)

Ms. P. and Ms. D.
They have both been so good to Clayton! He really loves them (as you can tell!).

Grammie and Papaw were so sweet to drive in for the performance.
Clayton was THRILLED to have them in the audience!

Clayton loves this little girl...

and this one. :)

We got our Mother's Day & Father's Day presents at the little reception after the program.
I got a flower pen in a flower pot, and Wade got this cute little frame.
It said, "Hooked on You, Dad" and Clayton had on a fishing hat in the picture.

When we got home, we had a mini-party for Clayton. We ate cake and he got a couple of presents. Any excuse for a party, right? :) He got a watch and some golf clubs. He was loving life!

Clayton has 2 more days of preschool, and then he will officially be kindergarten bound! The end of one chapter, and the beginning of the next. I can't wait to see what the future holds!

Way to go Clayton! How time flies when you're busy growing up! Sarah, look how much growing you and Wade have done with this little guy and so much more to come with both of them. Ain't it a great ride?
Love you all,
Papa Joe and Kimi

Congratulations, Clayton (and Mom, Dad, and Drew)! The video was great - almost like being able to be there.

Yeah Clayton! What a great job! I can't wait to see all the fun you have in Kindergarden.

Holly said...

Wow! He is so grown up. I just love the way he smiles that huge smile for pictures and puts his arms around his friends and teachers.

Way to go, Clayton!
