Graduations

Last Thursday was the boys' last day of playgroup. One of our crafts that day were these little graduation hats.

And one of the moms made these cute diplomas.

Friday was Graydon's preschool graduation.

The ceremony was super adorable.  I made it without crying until the very end.  But the "Moving Up to Kindergarten" song makes me cry every time.  Here are some highlights. . .

At the graduation, Graydon's teacher gave us a package with the instructions not to open it until we got home.  When Graydon later opened it, he discovered the class pet, Wiggles with a note that read, "I have gotten too big for preschool and was looking for someone to adopt me.  I remembered that you and your family will be moving this summer and thought I could move with you!"  Taking the class pet home was something that each child looked forward to and it meant so much to Graydon that Wiggles would be staying with him permanently!  And it was so thoughtful of his teacher in light of our upcoming move.

And that reminds me, I never officially announced our upcoming move on the blog!  By now, I'm assuming that most of you already know anyway.  But in case you don't, we're moving to Indiana where Andy will become the pastor of a church out there.  We'll move at the end of July.  It's going to be a busy summer! 

Some other stuff we've been up to. . .

We took the kids mini golfing for the first time.  The first nine holes went smoothly, but it was a hotter day than we had anticipated it being and everyone started to wear out a bit.  Still had a fun time though!

The boys seem to be making their way into our room some time during the night.  I'll wake up to find an extra person or two in bed with us.

We've got a busy week with end-of-the-year festivities and then it's off to Wisconsin!  Oh boy. . . there is so much to do!
