Happy Graduation, Violet!

Preschool Class of 2011, this is the first day of the rest of your life. The graduates squirmed and spaced out and went on emo tour while the teachers called them up one-by-one to receive their diplomas. Each kid did the walk in a signature style. Violet daintily bent one leg behind her when she hugged her teachers, trying out her stage presence.

But she was unimpressed when she unrolled her diploma after the ceremony, "What's this? It's nothing!" Totally, all that hard work for a measly scrap of paper.

I was not the only parent fighting the tears during the ceremony. There's something sad about the sweetness of this age when looking ahead to the undeniable big kidness of kindergarten.
