belated graduation announcement

I still haven't found my cord to upload the pics on my camera...I think that's a PERFECTLY good reason for Kevin to buy me this:

Kevin doesn't agree so much. I'll be working on that.

BUUUTTT...I did get some pictures of Big H's Big Day...so I thought I'd do a little belated graduation day recap for yall!

My boy in his cap & gown (gown pronounced gow-an), feel free to shed a tear...Lord knows I did! They had all the kids walk in to the standard graduation song and all the parents stood and cheered for everyone, it was so cute. Those kids were so proud of themselves too, Hunt took it VERY seriously.

Here Hunt's either singing "I believe I can fly" or "Wind beneath my wings"...apparently the goal was to make me sob...or he was reciting one of his pledges, (as in pledge of allegiance, pledge to the christian flag and pledge to the Bible)...again, the goal was for Mom to cry like a baby. I mean, I know this was just a Pre-K graduation, but it means my baby is starting elementary school! And he can memorize things!!!!!!!!!!! (yes, I'm being dramatic...he can also read)

Cutest boy ever:

Singing "A-Tootie-Ta" or however you'd spell it...but it was C-U-T-E!!!!!!!!

That boy sang his hat crooked:

Hunter getting his diploma from his teacher, Ms. Maria. She is a saint yall. I wish I could take her with me and have her be his teacher forever. Hunter left Pre-K being able to read...and read WELL, he can write all sorts of words, he loves math, he has scripture memorized, he has a love for learning and a love of God. He tells me all the time about stories from the Bible. Him and Cierra pray before they eat, and without us initiating it! This was the greatest school and the thought they put into the graduation ceremony meant so much to all the parents. If anyone reading this needs a good preschool in NW Houston, let me know...my kids have been to several "daycares" and this place blows all others out of the water!!!!!

He looks so grown up. I can't believe he is starting kindergarten soon. Where has the time gone?

Yay for Hunter! He is such a big boy and looked so cute in his cap and gown. Erin- I am certain that you had(have) a lot to do with how wonderful he is too...not just his fab teacher. :)

He's so cute in his cap and gown! What a proud mom you must be! Lucy is missing CC and the Wii is lonely without Hunt- I think it's time for another visit!

Ohhh...he is SO CUTE! I don't know why all those preschool programs do songs, etc. that they KNOW will make a momma cry. Wind beneath my wings? Come on....I couldn't hear that song back in my teens without crying....and I didn't have any of the hormonal craziness that I now have, and that comes from being a mom!!!

Congrats to you and your precious son!

OH- and I got a new camera a lot like the one you pictured for my b-day/mother's day/anniversary! I had to lump them all together to convince my hubby! But I LOVE IT!!

I love the cap and gown! At all of my kid's concerts at school they have them sing "You Raise Me Up" by Josh Groban and "Imagine" by John Lennon. Seriously, I cry like a baby!
