Today was kindergarten promotion or graduation. I don't remember such an event from my childhood and I kind of think it is a bit overboard, since aren't kids expected to graduate from each grade? Do we need a celebration for things that are expected? I don't know, maybe I'm a bit old fashioned, but deep down I really did enjoy seeing my boy sing (even if it was SO painful for him to sing and be on stage), and just get recognized for his achievements. Like his principal pointed out, "Kids these days have it very different than when we were in kindergarten", they are reading, doing addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, science - seriously at ages 5 and 6! So, I guess that, YES I do want Jakob to feel like he did something special because all I remember doing in kindergarten is playing in the sandbox, chasing boys, playing house and taking a nap - probably didn't need a big celebration for that!

Oh and miss Sarah, doing her Sarah thing - Hide and Seek and just being goofy!! She said tonight that her favorite part of the day was hearing Jakob sing the "Alligator song" at his "gradumation".
