Kindergarten Graduation

Stinkerbell had her Kindergarten graduation this week. Isn't that the silliest thing to graduate from Kindergarten?

Oh, but it's dang cute, let me tell you. The Kindergartners entertained us with loads of songs they learned this year. It makes me smile just thinking about it.

You have to love the cute little caps made out of Styrofoam bowls and poster board too. Both of my girls had these for preschool graduations as well. Even sillier, but even cuter too. The bummer about these little hats is that they're impossible to keep on their heads.

After the first experience with these, we got smart and poked holes on the edges to loop a ribbon through, then we just tied the ribbon under their chins. Way cute on the girls, but maybe a little embarrassing for the boys.

But this year, somebody had a brilliant idea. I don't know who came up with this, but it's genius.

Duct tape.

Is that smart or what? So they lose a tinsy bit of hair, so what? Hair grows.

Here's Stinkerbell with her teacher, Ms. Austin. Thanks for a great year, Ms. Austin!

Kindergarten teachers are special people. They have the hardest jobs in the world.


  1. Love that graduation photo!

  2. You think kindergarten graduation is silly? Try pre-school graduation, which isn't really "pre-school," but daycare. And they're not really graduating, because they'll still be there all summer! But it requires an entire Saturday afternoon, a $25 contribution and a covered dish! I'm a graduation grinch. I'm sure I'll get weepy when I see photos and artwork though.

  3. I love the shirt! That is great :)

    Good thing it wasn't Zoe. Poor kid doesn't need anything else wrong with her hair!

    Thanks for sharing. Wire Nut hasn't brought anything home for his. Wonder when it is...

  4. How sweet. When mine graduated it was too cute.

  5. Oh those pictures are sooooo CUTE!! Yep, who needs those few strands of hair....hehehehehe

    LOVE the tee-shirt!!

  6. She is such a cutie-patootie!

    You are going to make me cry though. I remember my baby's pre-school graduation (thinking how ridiculous at the time) and now, in just 9 short days, he will be graduating from high school!

    Sickening how quick time flies!

  7. Congrats! AHHH yes cherish these days before you know it HS graduation will be upon you:-) Thanks goodness mine have not started school yet...Aria starts next Fall! Have fun this summer!

  8. So cute! My little one is in K too. Can't wait for his graduation party!

  9. That really is super cute! I don't know why we don't do that at my school. I think it is because we are way too exhausted! The duct tape is hilarious.
