Mikey graduated on Friday from Pre-K 1. He moves to Pre-K 2 in September and then….Kindergarten! OMG, I can’t imagine HOW I will be ready in just a little over a year to send him off to REAL, BIG KID school. One thing I am certain about, HE will be ready (at least academically- he would still very much rather be home with us than at any type of school). It is amazing to Mike and I how much he has progressed since starting Pre-K 1 in November. He got his chance to show off his abilities at the graduation. Each student was given a letter and they had to recite a little piece. Mikey has been practicing for weeks and although he raced through his at lightning speed (hmmm, wonder who he gets his fast talking from), he nailed it. Ms. Kim the lead teacher said-
“Mikey- Big P, little p, what begins with P?”
“Painting Pink Pajamas, Peter Peppers Puppy, and Papa’s in the Pail”
Here he is wearing the graduation shirt he made in class and holding his certificate-

Mike and I have carried on my parents tradition of giving a “graduation gift” after every grade we “passed.” Preschool counts right?! Here is Mikey enjoying his. He is always asking to go to the little putt putt place near our house. Now he can sweat and get eaten by bugs by himeself.
He is lucky (as are Mike and I to be able to save on weekly tuition this summer) and only has to go to “camp” 2 full weeks this summer and one part week. He will be with Mike’s parents for a total of 4 weeks (2 weeks at a time is all I can handle away from him especially with Braeden gone too), home with Mike a few weeks, home with me while my parents visit and then home with Mike’s aunt Terry who will come for a week and stay with both boys while Mike and I work.
Speaking of summer, Mikey is one step closer to swimming on his own. He passed his first swimming lesson session and has advanced to the next level. YAY Mikey! I took this picture with my phone since I forgot the camera, so it is not the best quality-
Have a great week!
