Emma graduated from Preschool last month. It seems like we just started our first day of school and then all of a sudden she’s in a cap and gown. I’m very impressed that I didn’t cry because let me tell you that first day of school was filled with a few tears. According to our friend and Emma’s teacher Ms. Katie, Emma was known as the Class President and she was the one that lead in the class. She looked like my little baby and a big girl all at once in that cap and gown. When did she grow up? I’ve been here the whole time but it has gone by so fast. Before I know it Ellie will be the one walking down the aisle and graduating from Pre-K. . .okay I am totally not ready for that!
Apparently Emma needed a body guard on the way to the graduation. Ellie was giving everyone the evil eye. . .seriously, I don’t want to even mess with her.

I’m not sure how much of the graduation Papa got to watch, but Ellie was entertained with him and his pen. . .she also knows he keeps “Papa mints” in his shirt pocket. . .hmmm.
Class of 2022. . .how old do you feel at this moment?

Emma and James. Ellie is very fond of James and practically knocks him down when she gives him a hug. You could say that he is Ellie’s boyfriend, but I don’t think Ellie’s Daddy would be too happy about that.

Ms. Katie, Emma and Ellie the honorary graduate. If it were up to Ellie, she would have stayed with Emma everyday when we dropped her off at school. I even tried to drop her off a few times, but then Ellie remembered how attatched she was to me and forgot that teddy, her blanket and princess pillow were waiting for her at home for nap time.

Another good one of my little graduate that looks all grown up.
Emma got to pick a restaurant to go celebrate her graduation. Can I just say “Thank God” Chuck E. Cheese was not the lucky restaurant that my 5-year-old chose. Her first choice was Schlotzsky’s, but I told her we could go anywhere and she said, “Even Red Lobster?” How odd is it that my 5-year-old and 2-year-old like calamari?? Alas, Red Lobster was chosen and six other adults were very happy to go there rather than Chuck E. Cheese!
Mom, Dad and Grandma joined us at Red Lobster
Dustin’s Dad also came too. It’s so funny any time my and Dustin’s parents get together because Emma always feels the need to introduce them.
