I held it together though! Even when we dropped Grant off in the room to get ready and I was confronted with 40 preschoolers in caps & gowns, I didn't break down. Yay me.
And even when the little ones paraded out - no tears :)
Grant was pretty nervous. I could tell when I saw him coming out that he was trying to find us.
|I love this picture. That boy seemed so irritated that|
Grant sat in the wrong seat (also, that boy is hilarious).
But once he found us, he was all smiles for us.
First they did the Pledge of Allegiance:
And then they sang "God Bless America"
Then some of the teachers spoke and one read a poem that finally made me cry (but that was the only time!).
|Listening to the poem that made Mama cry|
It was so cute! It was also a pretty long song so I'm amazed and impressed that they got 40 preschoolers to memorize and "dance" to a song that long!
Then it was time for diplomas!
|Lining up! (The sun was not my friend that evening)|
Time for Grant!
|He was so proud of himself!|
After that there was another song that they danced in the aisles to. I couldn't tell you the name of the song because I was laughing too hard at the way Grant dances:)
The first thing he said when it was over and he was getting hugs from all of us (Gramma & Grandpa went too) was "Can I have a cupcake now??" So we did a few pictures and then my little cake-hater sat down and ate a whole cupcake.

When we got home that night, Grant got his graduation present - a new backpack with his name on it for school this year (and some new books for us to read). We also went to Chuck E Cheese on Saturday for a celebratory lunch. I think he had a pretty great weekend!
