Logan's Preschool Graduation

It's hard to believe, but our little Logan graduated from preschool today!  Logan had such a wonderful experience this year attending Celebration Lutheran preschool where Lia went four years ago.  He was blessed to be assigned to Miss Vera, the same teacher as Lia.  She is honestly one of the nicest people I have ever met in my life and Logan loved being in her class AND I loved getting to see her again three times a week.  Logan really blossomed this year.  He did a wonderful job participating in class and following directions.  He also did a great job working hard on every worksheet and craft they were assigned.  Miss Vera always ranted and raved about what a wonderful student and artist he is and she even told me more than once that "He is such a love" when I picked him up after class.  I thought that was the cutest compliment from a teacher!
My mom drove down from Issaquah today to join Ella and me for Logan's graduation.  Ron had an all-day conference in SeaTac that prevented him from being able to come which was a bummer.  As a result, I was so grateful to have my mom join us and support Logan on his big day.  Logan looked so adorable in his outfit with his big, blue cast!  He was definitely the only child in the entire room graduating with a cast on and it definitely set him apart from everyone else.
Logan did a good job walking into the chapel with the rest of his classmates while "Pomp and Circumstance" was playing.  They then sang a few songs with the help of the pastor before walking up one at a time to get their "diplomas" from the teacher.  Afterward, we took some pictures and ate some delicious refreshments.  It was a wonderful way to spend the morning celebrating Logan.  He really has grown up so much this past school year after struggling with his "terrible twos" for several years.  Logan has really matured and has really learned how to control his emotions when he gets upset.  In addition, he has become a lot more agreeable and is barely thrown off by transitions from activity to activity.  Logan also LOVES coloring and looking through books and can easily spend one to two hours at a time sitting down and quietly working.  For all of these reasons, I feel like he is finally ready for Kindergarten to begin in the fall.  Good job, Logan!  We are so proud of you!

  1. And just like that, he's off to Kindergarten! Is your Kindergarten half day or full day? When is your first day of school?
