kindergarten graduation

Abby has officially graduated from Kindergarten! Well... she will be starting K. again in August at public school. We decided not to rush things, even though she is educationally more than ready for first grade. She was one of the top students in her class this year and finished on D/E level reading and well into 1st grade math. Here is Abby in her cap and gown:

The kids were so cute during the ceremony. They each read a little line, and they finished by saying their motto and throwing their caps in the air. Their motto sounds a little something like this, "We can do anything we want as long as we make good choices and do our best. Kindergarten kids, who are they? The best darn kids in the U.S.A.! Kindergarten, Kindergarten, yay!
