It's over- and this mama made it through with no tears at all. Thanks to an unorganized someone- I couldn't even see my boy as he stood on the second riser behind two kiddos taller than him- even one riser down, and between two girls who were more than a head taller than him. Also, thanks to the fact that someone thought that it would be a good idea to give the actual diploma to a three year old and then make him go sit on the gym floor for 10 minutes- we have about 39 (pieces of) diploma(s). I left feeling mad and disappointed.(He's in the second row behind the boy in plaid and the girl in the flowered dress)
But then I got over it. And then we went out for sushi. He didn't get his chocolate fountain, but he did get sushi and LOTS of balloons- so all was right in his world.
Thursday was the end-of-the-year preschool picnic at Hummel Park. We joined all of Owen's friends and teachers for a final farewell before summer. It was a lot of fun and the kids really enjoyed getting to play together one more time.
After the picnic, the boys and I made our way to the zoo for the member's grand opening of the Cheetah exhibit. Owen participated in the highly anticipated, fairly lame "Race a Cheetah" feature, and we got a glimpse of the beloved cheetahs snoozing in the sun.
It was a great end of the school year and I am excited to spend the long summer days with my sweet boys!
