Kindergarten Graduation

It is graduation time here, and not just at the seminary. On Saturday Mikey officially graduated from kindergarten.

I was not a big fan of the concept, and overall the night was a bit of a dud. There were, however, some Kodac moments which I am required to share.

The event was held at a nice chacara here in town. As soon as we arrived, we got this nice picture. You may notice that there are not many people milling about. The (very formal and expensive) invitation stated that the event began at six. We arrived at six. It started at eight.

This is Mikey standing by the pool. Mikey would have enjoyed the evening more if he had been able to get IN the pool.

Mikey and a classmate.

All the parents walked down the aisle with their children.

Each kid got a diploma and a ring (a RING!!!). Here is Mikey, sporting his "bling".

Nothing to do with the graduation, but I thought that these little houses on the side of the palm trees looked cute.

The untouchables.

A nice shot of Mikey's hand with ring and diploma.

Tell me about it. I didn't even have a high-school graduation!

Poor homeschooler! They do have graduations now!

And Shanna--I'm sure a ring is in your near future! I'll keep checking!

They did back then too. I just thought being the only one in my class kind of defeated the purpose of a graduation.

I do believe that you had a kindergarten gtaduation, also, and a sixth grade one.

Now that you mention it, I do vaguely recall the sixth grade commencement. I have no recollection, however, of the kindergarten one.

Thanks Aggie! We are thrilled about the baby as well. We have already decided, however, that this one will NOT go to Kindergarten graduation.
