My Graduate

My daughter Boo has successfully completed pre-school and she now moves onto Kindergarten. Her graduation ceremony was Friday and I think I may have ruined my chances for mother-of-the-year:

1. Our friends brought flowers for their daughter. I brought Target brand fruit snacks.
2. There was an award for volunteer of the year. I didn’t know we could volunteer.
3. I learned that grandparents are invited to graduation ceremonies.
4. Parents dress up for pre-school graduation. We wore beach attire (to our credit we were on our way out of town… to the beach).

 

Now only one year until the next graduation… I get a re-do!
