There are LOTS of pictures attached to this post... I'm sure many will be boring to most people, but they are here for me, and I love them... I'm just sharing them with you. Not one of them looks the same to me (probably do to you) and they all make my heart smile differently.... they are all my baby girl...with that, here is my post.
There kids are AWESOME - especially my Anna Clare
We got to the school at about 7:45 and Tim and I were able to go into the gym (which they said would open at 8:00 for parents) and get a front row seat. 5K graduation is a pretty big deal, so we were happy to get a good seat. Included in the 5K graduation is the 3K and 4K programs. So, in all, there were about 150 kids in the program. Multiply that by parents and grandparents, siblings that came to see them, and the gym is FULL! But, WE got a front row seat.
5K singing praises!
Doesn't it just bring tears to your eyes when children lift their hands in priase? And Anna's are SO way up there! You go my little girl!!!
Anna's handbell in action!
Deep in thought
Bells in action!
Wait for it.....
Anna waiting her turn for her next speaking part
She made it through with no issue - if only she would have been smiling... I guess memorizing and smiling don't go real well together
She looks strange in this picture... but she's waving to me - that's my girl!!!
George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Uncle Sam made their presence at the program. The kids were ADORABLE!
Leave it to Anna.... remember the cap issue - her bows were going to interfere with her cap. Well, they didn't. However, about 1/2 way through the program, Anna's cap got bumped as another child was walking past her and her cap came off. Anna's was the only one! So, she played with it through part of the program :) First I thought... ooohhhh STOP playing with that. But then I thought... who cares. That is my Anna! It's her day!
After the presentation, Mrs. Bryant came back up and each 5K child was called up and given their "diploma". It was awesome!
