Avery's Preschool Graduation

Avery is not only turning five soon but has also rounded the corner from toddler to grade schooler. Avery has graduated from preschool and is heading on to Kindergarten this Fall. Just as a personal note, I can't believe that my baby is going to school. She is my last and my only girl and is so precious to me. I enjoy each day with her at home. I am glad that Kindergarten is only half day here.

Each of the kids in her class chose a holiday theme from the year and sang the song that Miss Janet taught them. It was super cute. Avery chose Valentine's Day and is actually standing on her heart here. =)

Preschool graduation had an exciting unexpected guest right at the end: a bat. Yes, it was noon with the sun shining brightly. The moms unitedly decided that he must be rabid so we all made the only dad there catch him. I don't know what was funnier, the dad chasing the crazy bat all over the patio or watching the moms run around screaming. I am proud to report that I did not scream nor did I panic. He even flew at my leg and I remained calm. Ask my mother-in-law how impressive that is for me!

Here is my Little Miss Avers with Miss Janet and the Busy Bee Preschool Class of 2009. It's on to the real world now, kiddos!


  1. I love all the pictures! Yes that is good for you not to panic. : ). Our oldest Madyson will be going to kindergarden also. To bad we didn't live in the same area again and they could become friends in kindergarden like us!

  2. Way to go, Ess! I'm proud of you for keeping so calm. I know I would have run for cover - I hate bats. And congratulations to Avery. I know she loved preschool and will love kindergarten even more.

  3. Congrats to little Miss Avery!! I can't believe that she'll be going to kindergarten in the fall!! Don't you wish our kids could stay young forever?!? ;)

  4. Congratulations Miss Avery! Not even in kindergarten yet, and already had an encounter with a bat. Now that's quite a preschool!

  5. a BAT?!?! Yuck!! I'm impressed you stayed calm. I would not have.

    And Congrats Avery on graduating preschool! I can't believe she's old enough to go to kindergarten!!


I'd love to hear your thoughts! :)
