Happy Trails to You

Happy trails indeed. The trail to first grade. The trail to more challenges. The trail to a new school year.

Today marked another milestone in the life of a five year old…kindergarten graduation. Lucky me was the kindergarten teacher in charge of teaching the music. Yeah me. Can I just say that I am tired of the songs? If I hear Happy Trails to You anytime soon, I may scream.

Despite our poor rehearsals at school, the kids did a great job! I was very pleased. Even our little monkey cooperated……and believe me, I was worried.



However, I had to keep motioning to her to stop playing with her skirt!



Whew, we’re done!



On to the classroom. Anna Grace had her own little fan club with her. Daddy, Katie, Natalie (K’s best friend and future roommate), and Catlan.

Anna Grace received several awards including The Most Cheerful. Do you agree?



The official diploma giving



After the awards portion but before the party portion, the kids were allowed to go greet their guests. So what does Anna Grace do? Runs straight past Daddy and Katie and into Catlan’s arms.




Coming up next….Baccalaureate and senior graduation
