Kelsey's Kindergarten Graduation

Well, my friends, the day has finally come.  Kelsey is a first grader.  And apparently, in Oklahoma they have Kindergarten graduations.  For us, it involved getting to the school 15 minutes early, finding a crowded gym, and sitting somewhere near the back.  They had a little power-point showing of all the kids in a cap and gown pictures and played "Wind Beneath My Wings" over and over again.  (You know, I can honestly say that I haven't really liked that song since the early 1990's.)

While we waited, I amused myself by snapping a few pictures.

 Someone looks bored.

But at least Olivia was having a good time.

And something tells me I should have put a little make-up on this morning.  Oh well...

And what do we have here?  A little nose-picker, perhaps?

Finally the kids came in and got on the risers at the front of the gym.  They sang a few songs, we clapped for a few people, and 15 minutes later we were done.  They even kept the kids on the risers for an extra 10 minutes so parents could get good pictures.  This is my kind of graduation.

Afterward we walked Kelsey back to her classroom for more pictures, and Kelsey insisted on one with her Daddy.  It's a good thing, too, because he won't let me post the other pictures I got of him while we were waiting.

Happy graduation, Kelsey!
