Kindergarten Graduation

With one of her buddies, Blaykelee

After Graduation...our heads look huge with the shadow behind!

All grown up...

Part of their poem performance

Introducing and leading the crowd....

Gracie has graduated from Kindergarten! Wow, this year kind of flew by. Gracie loved school. She reminds me of how I was at her age. A perfectionist when it came to school work, and I loved being at school. Gracie had a wonderful teacher, Mrs. Andersen, and she made lots of friends. When Delon and I showed up to her graduation performance, we didn't really think much about Gracie always telling us she didn't want us to come, we just assumed she was being "Gracie". But as the program started, Gracie stood and led everyone in the Pledge of Allegiance, singing the Star Spangled Banner, and introducing the remainder of the program! You should have seen our faces. I'm sure our mouths were hanging open in disbelief. You have to understand, Gracie is a very friendly and social person when it's her decision to be so. But this is something she would never volunteer to do. I'm so glad her teacher gave her that responsibility. Ever since, she has had a little more confidence...and she did GREAT!

She is a shining star and you just wait, she will be a lot more out going than you think. What a cutie.
