The Graduate

For some reason (obviously because I was in highschool during the original 90210 run) everytime I hear that someone graduates, I start chanting, "Donna Martin Graduates. Donna Martin Graduates." It's going to be repeating in my head the whole time I type this post. Sorry. Hopefully, you didn't ever watch the episode where Donna got suspended and her whole class staged a walkout if she wasn't allowed to graduate (hence the chant.)

What was the point of this post? Oh, "little" Ty is no longer all that little.

He's an official Preschool Graduate! Tuesday night (6/16), Aunt Shannon came over to watch the triplets (thanks Aunt Shannon) and the rest of us headed over to watch the pomp and circumstance.

The program was wonderful. The kids sang a bunch of songs with plenty of hand motions. Ty did a fabulous job of participating and didn't do anything embarrassing (always a plus).

Ironically, there are a number of kids in Ty's class that have sisters in Zoe's grade. When we got to the graduation, she asked if she could, "sit with her friends." Are you kidding? It's starting already? Nooooooooooooooo, you can't sit with your friends, you can sit with your FAMILY! After I broke the bad news to her that she was stuck with us, she matter-of-factly told be that "after the graduation, me and my friends will be in the game room!" Oh boy!

It was a great year, for Ty. He loved his class and his teacher (Mrs. Bushman). He'll really miss the preschool but is looking forward to Kindergarten, something fierce!
