The graduate... again

Those of you who've followed my blog for a couple years or more know that Courtney has graduated twice already... from Kindergarten Connection (preschool, 2011 & 2012). This morning, she made the big step of graduating from KINDERGARTEN! Here she is below with (most of - I cut some off) her graduating class of 54. She's on the top riser, third from the right. (Once again, it was very hard getting good photos, due to distance and darkness. You should see the ones I deleted - ha!)

Here she is being congratulated and receiving her diploma from her wonderful teacher. (Behind her teacher stands one of the teachers her daddy had in elementary school. Wow, how the years fly by!)

After a short program, we were treated to special cupcakes, and then went outside for some photo opps with better lighting.

The cupcakes were soooo yummy!

Courtney and her good friend, Erin, pose for a photo together on their LAST DAY OF SCHOOL.

And graduation wouldn't be graduation without shots with Daddy and Mommy!

It was kinda windy. Oops... the mortar board blew off a couple of times...

... and needed replacing.

Enough pics already, Grandma(s)!

Congratulations, sweet girl! We all love you soooo much and we're so very proud of you!!!

It was kinda fun to look back and see the previous graduation blog posts. If you're interested they're here (2011) and here (2012). She's grown up a lot in the last couple of years. And the photographer seems to have improved, too! ;)

That last picture cracks me up.

Yeah, I think it'll be a good one to use somehow at her senior graduation party. ;)

A degree in graduation - yes, I think so! :)
