Graduation



J's preschool Graduation was so awesome. His teacher Mrs. K goes all out. They came in with their caps and gowns on and then performed all these different songs for us in between their individual speaking parts. Every time I would practice with J at home he seemed to mostly know his part but needed a little prompting from me and would always say it so quietly. I was a little nervous how he would do in public since he gets super embarressed speaking in front of an audience ( usually he just doesn't do it) but he did FANTASTIC he said it loud and clear and knew every word. The whole program he did so great he sang and danced and not once did he get embaresed. Mrs. K gave each child an individual reward based on them he got the "Smile Award" she said he is always good for a laugh and is always trying to make people smile. So he got the Whoopee Cushion ( which he has treasured ever since). Everything was so good and I couldn't help but cry a couple of times. Every time I would look at Jackson he was trying to get me to take a picture of him, so he would smile Super big. After it was over she gave all the kids Beach Balls that they could have all their friends sign as a sort of Yearbook, it was so cute, and a video with pics from the year which J has watched a million times.
