Walking in…if you notice they are all wearing their Daddy’s white dress shirts backwards. Enough to make me cry right there…
This is the part where I sort of lost it. I tried to hide the tears behind the camera but I just couldn’t seem to stop my eyes from filling up when they sang I am a Promise
I am a promise
I am a possibility
I am a promise with a capital "P"
I am a great big bundle of potentiality
And I am learnin’ to hear God’s voice
And I am tryin’ to make the right choice
I am a promise to be anything God wants me to be.
I can go anywhere that He wants me to go
I can be anything He wants me to be
I can climb the high mountains
I can cross the wide sea
I’m a great big promise you see!
All I could think about was buying Oh the places you’ll Go before she was even born and reading it to her. Can you really blame me?
(Emma is the first on the left of the top row)
Then it got worse when they played handbells to I Love You, Lord, one of the songs I sing to the girls at night sometimes.
Then they sang What a Might God We Serve
Emma is a bit hesitant but tells everyone she learned to share this year at school.
She gets her diploma
All her shyness wears off when she gets in Daddy’s arms. She glows and is so excited afterwards
Let’s watch Mommy cry…see the eyes…but where in the world did the neck wrinkles/rolls come from??? Gah, I hate getting old.
Now, where’s that other napkin I need to use as a tissue??
My favorite picture of the day. Except for that neck thing.
Emma and her bestest friend. Can you tell they’ve gotten in trouble for talking in class before? I love they are holding hands.
Emma and her teacher. They seemed to have a wonderful connection. My thank you note put her in tears. I told her that was fine, I was in tears writing in.
Cousin S gives her hug afterwards
Lexi gives her a hug
And I can’t help but post Ms. Lexi in her yellow sunglasses. Boy, world, wait for that one.
So, congratulations my little one, preschool is done now it’s time to conquer "big school".
