Sadie’s Preschool Graduation!

Today is Sadie’s last day of preschool. She’s been at her school since she was a baby – I am so sad to leave! And on this day I wanted to share her preschool graduation! As I’ll probably cry today, many tears were shed at her graduation! No, I’m not kidding. I cried. I have always been an emotional person but I swear ever since having Sadie it’s gotten worse! Pretty sure I’ve cried on every single birthday she’s had so far. Sigh.

Her school has a moving up ceremony each year for all the kids ages three and up, and a graduation ceremony for those moving onto Kindergarten. The last few years only I’ve gone since its always on a Friday in the morning, but this year Dave and my mom took off of work!

First, the preschool class came out and led the Pledge of Allegiance. Sadie had been learning it and practicing for months!

Walking up to the stage. Sadie has her finger on her lips because when they walk around in school its, “Fingers on the lips, hands on the hips!” Hahahaha.

After the pledge, the younger kids came up and danced/sang to cute songs and then the preschoolers came back up to perform their song. Not everyone in Sadie’s class is moving onto Kindergarten next year – some kids don’t make the school district birthday cutoff, so the graduates were in the front and the rest of the class followed.

They did a dance to Can’t Stop The Feeling (a la Trolls/Justin Timberlake) and it was so cute! Another one Sadie had been practicing – she knew all the words and had the dance moves down pat! They also sang a really cute song about family. The whole time I was tearing up as I was watching her… my baby!!

After the two songs, the curtain closed, the kids who weren’t graduating left the stage and the graduates donned their caps and gowns again! And I started to cry. Hell, who am I kidding? I cried the whole time.

When the ceremony was over we all headed to a classroom for some cake and refreshments. I snagged the opportunity to take photos of Sadie with her two teachers! They were so wonderful all year – I am sad to be leaving them!
