Graduation Part 2

I can remember the first time I dropped off Ava at preschool at 18 months it seemed that preschool graduation and starting Kindergarten was so far away.  For this I was so glad.  The time FLEW by, faster than I could have imagined.  I would lie to say this does not bother me.  I have enjoyed every stage that preschool brings and I am not ready for it to be over.  They had the song "Find your wings" by Mark Harris playing as the graduates walked in.  I had tears!  Big tears actually!  It says at the end of the song....It's not living if you don't reach for the sky.  I will have tears as you take off, but I will cheer as you fly....that sums up this basketcase mommy right here!

The graduation was so precious.  They interviewed each kiddo.

Name:  Ava Tompkins
Favorite color:  Pink (Shocker!)
What do you want to be when you grow up:  Elsa (Another Shocker!)

They had such a cute program.  Songs they learned in music, colors in Spanish, and a fun Jump dance.
Then it was time to get the diploma.

As Ava was walking out she was so excited to see her fan club!

(As you can see, Emma was being a toot!  So glad I have many more preschool years with this one!)
Then we headed back to Ava's room to take pictures and collect all her goodies.

Ava has been with these girls for 3 years!  So glad their friendships will continue after preschool.

Emma and Carson gave Ava her first flowers! Ava was thrilled!  
Here is Ava and her teachers. Mrs. Paula and Mrs. Michelle
And the last picture sums up PRESCHOOL Graduation!

I am so proud of you!  In your note from your teachers it said you have one of the sweetest spirits.  You are kind and loving and a friend to all!  And I hope you know that as I do watch you grow that God will fill your heart with dreams and that you would continue with that sweet spirit in all you do!  I have LOVED every minute of you preschool days.  I will always cherish these memories.  I am here for you whatever this life brings, let me my love give you roots and help you find your dreams!  IT's not living if you don't reach for the sky.  I have tears as you take off but I will always cheer as you fly!  Ready or not, Kindergarten here you come!  (At least I have 13 more years until highschool graduation!  And, I really can't wait to see those dreams God is already laying on your heart!  I know he has big plans for you!)
I Love You bigger than the sky!
