Graduation

Savannah receiving her diploma from her teacher!

Well, I made it through Kindergarten graduation! It was Friday morning and they gave awards and then walked across the stage to get there diploma! I did cry, It was emotional to see her class and especially her. After they received there diplomas all 4 K classes went up on stage and did a few songs. She got a award for explemary behavior for the year. That diffidently makes us proud! After the ceremony we stopped by her class room and picked up a packet and had our goodbyes. Of course I start crying again, man I have gotten attached to the kids in her class as well, not to mention her teacher. We were blessed with a awesome teacher! Thanks Kim for putting your heart into teaching, may God Bless you and your family! Way to go Savannah we are so very proud of you and love you bunches! And now I can say I have a 1st grader! What happened? It seems like I just had her yesterday! LOL! This banner was was hanging on the stage and it said class of 2020! Oh my! They had it in the hallway for each of the kids to sign. Her teacher has them bring a piece of fabric and they make a quilt to hang on the wall with there class picture. She has been teaching 15 years and has each and everyone hanging in her room. I think that is real special for her to do that. She says kids always come back to see there quilts and pics!

What a cute little cowgirl! Love the hat! I made a scrapbook of all my daughter's school pics, awards, and report cards,as well as snapshots of her. She loves it and it is kind of like looking at a time capsule as you can see how much they change from year to year. And the years go by so fast!
