the end of the year party!

i had planned on going to the graduation and then heading off to work but when i found out there was going to be an End of the Year Party too?  well, that meant a day off from the boutique and a day on with the jaspernator!

after all the games and the party, it’s time for the little kindergarteners to say goodbye to each other…

there was lots of hugs and lots of squealing.


luckily, there were also a lot of play dates arranged 🙂

hello, almost first grader!


a kindergarten graduation…

well, jasper lilith has gone and done it…  she has graduated kindergarten and moved on to first grade…

but i am going to pretend that she is still a kindergartener for about 2 more months.

i imagine that she will have something to say about that…

turns out it was a funny story.

after all the kindergarteners walk the stage, we all mill around the auditorium for a bit and then the kiddos go to change into party clothes…

because it’s party time now!
