Preshool Graduation

I've always thought preschool graduation was kind of a silly thing. This is our second preschool graduation. They go all out. The graduation was at Queen Creek High School at night and we had to purchase tickets too. The kids sang several songs, there was a slide show, her teacher gave a speech, while the kids changed into their cap and gown and then they walked across the stage to receive their diploma. The whole thing lasted about an hour. 
 Jordyn hugging her teacher Ms. Shiela. We started this preschool in January. I'm amazed at what Jordyn has learned in 5 months. She counts to about 130. She counts to 100 by 5's and 10's. She counts by 2's to 20. She adds (like 9 + 9). She learned her basic phonograms and started reading. She's awesome at sounding at each letter. This school was amazing and I feel good knowing Jordyn is more than prepared for kindergarten. In January she wasn't.
 They sang "You Raise me Up" by Josh Groban in Sign language. They would have a ASL lesson, spanish lesson, cooking lesson, PE lesson, and art lesson occasionally.
The two other boys we car pooled with: KJ and Josh (they aren't brothers). Jordyn and Josh are going to the same school next year. Yes they are all 5 years old...Jordyn is just really tall. Now that I think about it she had a little heel on her shoes too. I made her a candy lei and all of us went out to dinner after. Jeff unfortunately wasn't able to come because he had a campout that night.

She's the cutest little preschool graduate ever! Sounds like a very good preschool by her progress! It's so nice when they are ready and ahead of the class when they start school.
