Wow...I never could have prepared myself for just how proud I would be tonight! The graduation ceremony was adorable. And Lynzi was just too cute! She had so much fun and I just couldn't stop smiling the entire time. I don't think I could have been more proud, even if she had been on that stage for two master's degrees! She was awesome! They started the "pomp and circumstance" and the tiny little preschoolers started filing in, sporting their precious grad caps and proud grins! When Lynzi came around the corner...she was boasting the most beautiful smile anticipating getting on that grand stage! After they all filed on the risers, the director told us that they were going to sing two songs and Lynzi quickly realized that she was lined up directly in front of a microphone and that made her so giddy....she tapped her friend next to her and excitedly pointed to the mic and they both put their fists up to their mouths and just shrieked with excitement! She sang her heart out and did the most animated motions you could imagine! Then they had each individual class come down and say their memory verse. Lynzi's class verse was Philippians 4:13. Then the director called out their names individually and they walked across the stage to get their diplomas! I told her afterward that if my heart had been anymore happy...it definitely would have burst! I got there early enough that the very front row, right in the center was open...but by the end, it was packed out. So, I'm glad we got great seats! Uncle Nate and Aunt Sarah came also and she was really glad for them to be there! There was a reception following the ceremony with graduation cakes and juice boxes!!! Haha...fun stuff!
On our way home, we stopped by her school to see which class she will go to tomorrow. They posted the class lists on the doors today. There are teachers from 2 schools teaching this summer, so we were really glad to see that she got a teacher that is from her school. She is READY. She picked out her outfit, complete with bow and flip flops today and her backpack is packed! She is ready to rock her first day of school! Definitely more pics (and probably tears) to come tomorrow...
