I don't know who thinks these sort of things up but they are very clever. I am the most anti crying sentimental person around. And I was beside myself at this graduation. For starters they put them in a cap and gown which is the cutest thing you can do to a preschooler thats about to start the rest of their education for reals. But they also had a slide show with pictures of the kids throughout the school year and they put it to music. The worst was when they showed pictures of the kids dressed up as what they want to be when they grow up and played the song from Martina McBride "Do it any way". Imagine a picture of your kid in their little business suit and then these words are sung.....
You can spend your whole life buildin'
Something from nothin
One storm can come and blow it all away
Build it anyway
You can chase a dream
That seems so out of reach
And you know it might not ever come your way
Dream it anyway
I mean blow me out of the water there is no water proof mascara out there that can with stand that! Then they played the graduation song and these tiny little kids came walking down the isle. They called out each of their names and gave them their certificate of graduation. And get this.. They had them curtsy and bow before they sat back down. Now we are into the ultimate cuteness realm. And then they sang a song called I am a promise I am a possibility ... with a Capital P! I am spent. It was too much for me to hold in my tears. I look horrible after I cry and I feel all embarrassed. It was like being molested in a way. I am so glad I went though and I am proud of her and can't wait to see how the rest of her school years turn out. This is the beginning of many things to come. She is going to rock this world.
