And then I walked in Alise's room to wake her up and saw her six month baby picture as well as pictures of her with her Pre-K3 friends on her night stand and I nearly lost it. That was 6:30 AM.
And then we fought over which dress she was going to wear the last day of school.
Here she is on the first day of kindergarten in August 2010.
I met Wayne and Alise for a celebratory lunch at Pie Works.
This was the stage for the kindergarten performance. I was the very first person there. I told you I would be! Ha! So of course, we had front row seats!
Alise opened up the performance. I'm not sure if she volunteered or if she was chosen for the job, but either way she did wonderful! So unlike her mother, she seems to not be shy about public speaking. Her line was, "Please stand for the pledge of allegiance and remain standing for the prayer."
This is her after the prayer sitting beside her sweet friend, B.
Some shots of her dancing during the performance.
And then! Mrs. M had to go and do it! The boys and girls danced with their partners to "Can I Have This Dance?" I was bawling like a baby!! They just weren't suppose to learn how to dance in kindergarten!!
At the end of the dance, the boys spun the girls around and that sat on their knee. More bawling ensued!!
The whole kindergarten singing with our Head Master to "Happy Trails To You" at the end of the performance.

E and Alise. I just love how she has her hand on his arm. So sweet. Think I can use this pic as blackmail in the future?You can tell I've been crying in these pictures because my face is blotchy and my nose is red. This is me, Mrs. M, and Alise Very, very proud parents!
My sweet kindergartener with her diploma!
And here are the happy Grandparents! Me and Alise with my Mom and Dad.
