preschool graduate

It's officially summer break up in here; Willa had a half day today to finish out her school year.

Naptime is currently going terribly; Cameron is so excited to have his sister home that he's not sleeping and the clock is quickly ticking down on what's left of Willa's hour of quiet time. But I best just embrace the moment because I'm sure it's going to be just like this for the next 2.5 months! I am genuinely excited for summer adventures, but naptime is so precious...hard to part with! 

Anyway! Here are a few pictures from the last week or so of school. And a video at the end if you're so inclined!

^^willa's last unit of school was about exercise. at the end of the year "celebration of learning" we got to see a lot of the class's work. i particularly liked the picture she drew above. good reminder for all of us!^^

^^they had a little graduation ceremony yesterday during which we watched them receive their diplomas, listened to them sing a goodbye song, and watched a slideshow of pictures from the year. i'm blaming pregnancy for tearing up during the pictures. after the ceremony we had cake on the lawn and most of the kids practiced their tree-climbing skills.^^ 

It's so typical of me to say, but I honestly can't believe she's done with preschool and will start kindergarten in the fall! She grew up so much this year. Learned to write much more than just her name, and is starting to ponder reading. More important than all that, she made and nurtured friendships with each and every one of her classmates. It's so fun to watch her grow up.
