Emma's Class Party

Emma finished 1st grade today and had a class party! They had pizza and juice boxes and cupcakes and they made a year book that their classmates signed. Here is Emma at her desk in row 5 having a fun time!

Emma also loved her teacher, Miss Slota. Miss Slota made everything so wonderful for Emma this year!

Way to go Emma!!! We're excited to see you succeed in 2nd grade!!!

Look Who Graduated From Preschool!

John graduated from Miss Autumn's Preschool last night! He has been attending preschool for 2 years and is now ready for Kindergarden!!!

In walked the graduates with "bubbles" in their mouths to keep quiet. Look at that smile. Doesn't he look so happy! They all made Alphabet Books and each shared a letter, it's sound and the word it makes. John said, "D, Da, Door". He then said what he wanted to be when he grew up- "a Firefighter, because they help people." They got their diploma's and showed us what they made with their names and letters and little hand prints." What a sweet graduation. We sure love Miss Autumn! Great job John-John!

Sleeping Soundly
