My baby girl is a Kindergarten Graduate.
(Is this not too much? I couldn't stand how adorable their 'senior pictures' were!)
Oh what fun! She was SO excited.
What a big day!
The Pre-K3 and Pre-K4 kids led the procession....
Matthew (above) and Benjamin (below) are two of Gianna's best friends...
And then the music changed to (get this...) Chariots of Fire. My eyes immediately filled with tears, until I saw this smile up close....
I can't say enough about her teacher who is also the school owner/director.
She is an AMAZING woman of God and we will miss her terribly.
The "Seniors" led all the beginning prayers, pledges and songs.
Gianna and her friend, Mia, led God Bless America.
Gianna belted it out - on key. She was amazing and I was SO proud.
She had to introduce herself by her full name and give her phone number.
They had to read as a group.
(These kids are the best readers!)
They performed several songs (precious) and four or five memorized poems.
Too bad she's not very expressive. (ha)
And there were diplomas....
Gianna and Ms. Pam
I would be remiss to not sing the praises of Poise-N-Ivy Kindergarten and Pre-K. I have heard about it for years and never really understood what an absolute hidden treasure this school was until I was researching options for Pre-K for Gianna. They have the highest expectations for their program and their students matched with an equally high level of nurturing - of students AND parents. This will certainly be a difficult chapter end for both Gianna and I. We will miss the school, it's teachers, Ms. Pam and all our friends.
She requested a picture with each of the teachers at school. We will miss them terribly.
I think they will miss her too.
And Iain's parents even drove in for the graduation! From Florida!
She was SO excieted to have her Tito and Tita here.
....and Uncle Vinnie.
And her very proud, full-hearted mommy...
I love this girl with all of my being.
Contemplating what's ahead....
...she has to wear shades.
This little spunky monkey will go far in life, no doubt.
