Another day, another tooth…

My sister decided to pull out ANOTHER tooth tonight, but she’s gotten kind of wimpy about it hurting lately, so she asked us all for a little bit of help. Mommy does NOT have the stomach for it, so I told her I would take pictures for her! I’m going to be a photographer someday!

We took turns trying to pull it out, and videotaping it… Watch only if you have a strong stomach (which Mommy doesn’t)…

Graduation Day!

After two awesome years of preschool, today was my very special graduation day! We’ve been practicing for weeks at school, and there were A LOT of people there! We had so much fun, and couldn’t understand why all the moms and dads were crying!!!

My teachers, Mrs. Matchett & Mrs. Neihoff were AWESOME this year! I’m really going to miss them!

We had to line up and walk into the full auditorium and all the way on STAGE!

There were a lot of kids, and my class was near the back, so Mommy & Daddy had a hard time seeing me, but I kept finding them!

They even called my name to get my diploma!

The principal, Mrs. Knauss, made an awesome slideshow that made our moms and dads cry AGAIN!!!

Mommy made a slideshow of my two years in preschool… Enjoy!

Even though you can’t see me too well in the back, here is a short video of our Graduation performance!

Emily’s last day of preschool

Today was my very last day of preschool, and I’ve been a little bit sad about it! Tomorrow is my big graduation day, and I know Mommy’s going to be pretty sad too… I’m growing up fast! I’ve had so much fun in preschool this year!

-Emily

This was my VERY first day of preschool when I was 3! I’ve really grown up!

Ben must know he’s the next one off to preschool, because he wouldn’t take his backpack off today!

My class was pretty crazy today… some kids were being silly, and some were sad to be leaving…

Our teachers sent home a packet that we worked on:

These were some of my favorite art projects that Mommy took pictures of throughout the year (she’ll make us a scrapbook someday, and that way she doesn’t have to save boxes and boxes of artwork, but we can still remember everything we did!)

The best part of today is that we didn’t just have to leave our last day all sad… we got to go to Chuck E Cheese together and celebrate my friend, Jonathan’s, birthday! We all had a blast!
