Pre K Graduation

Last week Emma graduated from Pre K!!  It's true, they grow up sooooo fast.

First United Methodist did a great job of making the day special for the kids.

Weeks prior Emma returned home from school and told me that Ms Glory said all of the mommies would cry.  I had my stash of Kleenex handy but luckily the only time I felt teary was at first glance of Emma in her bright red cap and gown.  Each graduate entered the sanctuary one by one to the classic graduation song.  Her class performed many cute songs including the entire alphabet in sign language as well as the state song reciting all fifty states in alphabetical order!  

Emma is a lucky little girl to have had so many supportive family members in attendance.

 Grandpa and Grandma Bailey

 Aunt Linda

Big Daddy and Lita 

 Proud mom

Favorite little brother

One of her favorite classmates, Aubree

She was thrilled to receive her first diploma (she calls it her "iploma")

Ms Glory put together a booklet with sweet photos and memories. It also included this cute info page on Emma.  I especially adore the fact that her favorite food is broccoli and that she loves her mom :)

I guess we shall add that to this overflowing file of Emma's artwork and important keepsakes from her Preschool and Pre K years :)

Emma gave each of her classmates a farewell goody that said "Have a ball this Summer" which a plastic beach ball (thanks Pinterest!!)

Congrats graduate Emma!  You did an excellent job in Pre K this year and we are SO very proud of you!  You learned so much, made fun friends and LOVED school days.  We know that you will accomplish great things....starting with Kindergarten this Fall (you are definitely looking forward to the first day more than your mom is).  

"In the sunlight or the rain
Brightest nights or darkest days I'll always feel the same way
Whatever road you may be on know you're never too far gone
My love is there wherever you may be
Just remember that you'll always be my baby"
~You'll Always be my Baby by Sarah Evans
