We set out her outfit the night before.
And yes. That is the same skirt she wore on the first day of Kindergarten.
We set up the schoolroom with some of the artwork she completed this year...
and it was crazy to think how quickly it all flew by.
Posing for the obligatory photo...
Then preparing everything before her guests arrived...
There would be yummy punch in this bowl later...
along with tea, coffee, fresh fruit and dip, super delicious homemade fudge...
The party table was all set...
and ready to celebrate our girl.
Her sweet friend Aly surprised her...and us...with this adorable Graduation cap!!!
Aly made it just for Flynn!
Aly is a dear friend who comes once a week or so and spends time with Flynn.
She teaches her how to weave potholders, how to play games like dominoes, all about movies and characters and so much more. : )
Flynn and I showed her guests around her schoolroom. The people that came...Grandma and Aunt Margie, Aunt Sally, Blueberry Mary, our neighbor Joanne, Aly and her family, and our friends Justin and Jessica...are people who mean so much to Flynn, and were happy to celebrate her. After she showed her schoolroom, Flynn read a few books and a beautiful poem we practiced in printing class.
And then she received her certificate and moved her tassel and was a Kindergarten Graduate!
Her teacher...her Mommy...was so very proud. : )
We all were!
Then there was food and fun and gifts and games.
And favors to take home.
And one very happy First Grader.
( I'm excited too! I already have her curriculum for next year...and just looking through it is making me happy! )
