The Graduate, PreK that is!

There's not much cuter than a whole bunch of 5 year olds singing "God Bless America" at the end of their preK graduation. I've been listening to Mark sing "God Pless America" for weeks in the car. It's adorable. He smiles really big and sings his heart out. I couldn't wait to see him belt it out with all his buddies at the graduation. He did sing it loud and proud. In between his yawns.

Another song they sang was "Take me to Kindergarten" set to the tune of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame." Although he didn't actually sing that one. The video isn't very good but if you look really closely, you can see him in the front row, about in the middle, wrapping the sleeve of his gown around his arm, and around, and around again. Still pretty cute!

The "lyrics"

Take me to Kindergarten.
Take me to my new school

Buy me some paper and pencils too.
Crayons and markers and school is so cool.

It's time to say goodbye
To all our teachers and friends.

Cause it's one, two, three here we go
To Kindergarten!

He at least did sing the other songs and was very cute recieving his diploma. I smiled like a proud momma the whole time, and amazingly got to sit in the audience the entire time. Amazing! Ben didn't even fuss even though he was up way past his bedtime. And Zack (aka Wild Man) sat in his daddy's lap and listened to the songs. Such good babies! And Eric is such a big boy and sat so nice and quiet and, yea, I'm rambling, but they were just awesome! I figured either Kevin or I would be out in the hall keeping track of someone.

Wow, that's a lot of gushing for one post! Here's a few more pictures... they aren't great, but it's what we got!

By the way, they aren't flashing gang signs, or giving inappropriate hand gestures, you can't tell from the picture, but that's the ABC's in Sign Language. So adorable!

He looks so cute in his cap and gown! And it is even cuter that he looks bored with the whole thing! He is getting so grown up!

I did get a little teary Sue and Angie. But it was after when I said, well I guess you are officially a Kindergartener now. Through the ceremony I was just grinning like a silly girl over the cuteness of my boy (and the other kids were super cute too!)
