Bennett's Preschool Graduation

The Processional
Today was a bittersweet day for us, Bennett graduated from 4K and is moving on to kindergarten in the Fall.  We have been talking about it for months, to prepare both of us.  I knew it would be tough on her since she gets attached to her teachers each year.  However, I needed to prepare myself too since I am such an emotional person, and these past 5 years have really flown by.

When they started to play "Pomp and Circumstance," I was able to hold it together. However, when they showed the video of all of the graduates, with each of their baby photos and then their graduation one...I got a little teary-eyed. Steve just laughs at me, but I come by it honestly (DAD!!!).

Outside of a couple of sniffles from me, the day went very smoothly, no complaints from Bennett about what she wore, she smiled for us from the stage and then we enjoyed a casual lunch following the graduation...without any whining.  She did great, and it was a wonderful morning!  Though we missed having Preston in the family photos, it was much easier (and quieter) without him (love you buddy).
