Kindergarten Graduation

Last Thursday, Tessa's school had their Kindergarten Celebration ceremony. The kids did an awesome job singing and doing bible verses for us.

Look for Tessa's starring moment on the microphone at 3:20.

Each child got an award for the biblical characteristic they best portray. Tessa got the psalmist award for 'beautiful use of written and spoken word'. The teachers also gave them certificates with a 'most likely' job. Tessa was most likely to be an organic farmer! Yes!

I hope that happens and she can build a little spot on her farm for her parents and their vineyard. A mom can dream right?

The teachers read a little poem at the beginning that *almost* made me tear up. It basically said I'm giving your children back to you now, bigger and smarter than when we started. I also like the part where she said that if I see your child 10 years from now, we'll have a special place in our hearts for each other.

Coming from a family of educators, I know that's true. We'll always fondly remember Mrs. Andrews.

Next year we'll have a 1st grader and pre-K student at this school. Looking forward to it!
