We have a little graduate at our house now. John Derrick graduated from preschool last week. He has attended the Maple Hill Church of Christ Mother's Day Out/Preschool since it started back in 2006.
The evening started out with the classes getting on stage and singing a few songs. Poor John Derrick, he gets distracted easily. He was quit concerned that Grayson wasn't standing exactly where he suppose to during one of the songs. He spent the better part of this song, trying to get Grayson to move over. (sigh)
After all the classes finished doing their part (all the classes from the 3 year olds to the 1 year olds). The 4 year old class got to "graduate". They got to wear cap and gowns and walk across the stage and receive a "diploma." Is that not one of the most precious sights ever.
Here is John Derrick with his teacher Mrs. Rhonda. Mrs. Rhonda was the best teacher. She is such a sweet and kind and VERY patient teacher. I am so happy that he had her as a teacher this year. He has always had great teachers but this year was extra special with Mrs. Rhonda. In fact, John Derrick told me the other day that he didn't want to go to school next year because he wanted Mrs. Rhonda as a teacher and I should call Mrs. Anita and see if he could come back next year.
He is growing up too fast. He started at our Mother's Day Out program in 2006 in Mrs. Penny's one year old class. He was hardly talking at that time and now he is 5 years old, talking constantly and getting ready to go to kindergarten.
