Jackson's Pre-K Graduation

Jackson's school did a Pre-K graduation ceremony this week, and it was adorable! They had their little caps and gowns on to receive their "diplomas".

Then they put on a show! There are two pre-k classes at the school, and each class sang three songs. Jackson has been practicing for weeks, and he did so great! His favorite of the songs was "You've Got a Friend in Me". Of course, the first time he sang it for us, I cried. It's going to be hard for me to watch Jackson say goodbye to these friends and go to different schools. Many of them have been together for 4 years!

One of Jackson's teachers, Ms. Amber, wasn't able to make it to the graduation ceremony because she was put on bed rest and actually had her baby today! She put together a great slide show of the kids throughout the year. The kids giggled and laughed through the whole thing. They loved seeing themselves and remembering all the fun things they've done. Ms. Georgia and one of Jackson's favorite previous teachers, Ms. Monica, did a great job shepherding the kids through the ceremony. We had a mini photo session after the ceremony with the teachers, friends, and our little family.

Audrey had a lot of fun too. Several of Jackson's friends have younger sisters in Audrey's class, so they had fun playing together and watching their big brothers for the evening. In the end though, Audrey was excited to be in her Daddy's arms!

Jackson has grown and changed so much during his time at the JSC daycare. We are so blessed to have so many wonderful people pouring into our kids each day while we work, and we are so amazed by what a sweet, loving, and smart little boy Jackson is...most of the time. ;-)

There are a lot more pictures from the evening in the album!
