Ashton had his preschool end of the year party at the park on a beautiful day with all his buddies. They enjoyed ice cream and the chance to run around and scream without getting shushed!
That night they had a small graduation ceremony with 3 other preschool classes.
Each kid got the chance to walk across a big stage and receive a diploma. It was so cute, but the kids were a little overwhelmed by the huge stage and audience. Luckily they had their teachers to help them.
Ok Ashton, you're ready for kindergarten!
All three kiddos posing with their favorite teacher, Miss Teddy. All three of them had her for preschool during their time at Gateway.
Ashton also loved his other teacher Miss Amy.
Hunter's end of the year orchestra/marimba concert was a big to-do, and great fun. He really loved playing violin and will continue playing in middle school.
During the last marimba number he got to beat on the drums and march. Getting to play with the marimba band was a wonderful experience for him the last 2 years. We are lucky to have such a good music program!
5th grade graduation came next! They posted all the kids kindergarten pictures next to their 5th grade pictures on a board at the school.
There was a big ceremony at the school and everyone got a matching T-shirt and diploma.
We loved his 5th grade teacher, Mrs. Biglin.
Hunter is so lucky to have awesome buddies Logan and Tanner. They loved doing orchestra and math club together!
They were all in Mrs. Biglin's class together too!
On the last day of school I couldn't help snapping a picture of our neighbor kids about to get on the elementary bus. They are excited for summer!
