And now for the picture overload . . .
Waiting to say his rhyme. His shirt would not stay tucked in.
Saying his rhyme. . .
The memory card on my camera was too full, and I couldn't record. I thought Patrick recorded it, but he didn't. You would think that with two iPhones and two different cameras, one of us would have gotten a recording of him saying his rhyme. Oh well . . .
Just for posterity his rhyme was:
"V is for vegetables which we should always eat.
Ms. Herbert serves us plenty with meals that we eat."
Waiting to get his diploma.
Click above to watch the whole group saying their preschool rhyme (for some reason blogger won't connect to my youtube account).
And because you won't even remotely understand them:
"Get ready get set 'cause here we go.
We have already shown you all we know.
We graduated preschool and now we're done.
We laughed and we learned and it's been fun.
Get ready kindergarten 'cause we're on our way.
We graduated preschool - hip, hip hooray!"
Tired of waiting . . .
The things kids do when they know their parents can't get to them.
I love this picture. Andrew's little friend Noli (short for Magnolia) is behind him. She and her brother were adopted from China a while back, and it's been so amazing to see them grow and learn. I love her smile. It really does light up her entire face.
Andrew and Saylor, friends for life. I'm so glad they're going to kinder together.

Andrew with Mr. and Mrs. Cheatham, his preschool sponsors. Every year various members of the church that is over the preschool sponsor students. They pray for them, give them their field trip shirts, and send them little notes and cards throughout the year. The Cheathams have been Andrew's sponsors for both years he was at the preschool, and the really cool thing is that I've known Mr. Cheatham for a long time. When I was in high school and college I worked in my family's oilfield supply store. He would always come in and aggravate me and make me laugh. I'm so thankful they've been Andrew's sponsors for both years he was in school.
With Cami and Cari.
Andrew and Chloe having an intense conversation following his graduation.
In two weeks Andrew will be done with preschool forever. It's hard to believe how quickly the last five and a half years have gone by. And as much as I'd like to make time stand still, I know that the future holds so many wonderful things for him . . . my sweet, crazy, funny little boy. I look forward to all that's ahead of us.
