Before we sent our big kid off to Kindergarten, we had to do some pomp and circumstance at Apple Tree Children's Center. Yes...preschool graduation. It's sort of silly, but at least they didn't get decked out in caps and gowns. The ceremony was fairly short and very sweet...each kid got a special, very personal award that said something about his or her interests, character, or abilities. Henry received the "Remarkable Reader" award. Indeed!
He also did lots of hugging and striking poses with his teachers, Brittney and Christine, and his buddies (including those you see here -- Carter, Donovan, and Bella).
I'm so very very happy that he got to spend two valuable years at this center. I credit the preschool and its loving, talented staff for helping to prepare Henry so well for his public school adventures.
