The Green-Tongued Graduate

Last month, this little guy "graduated" from pre-school. They also did a cute program that they had been practicing for months and he had sung me all the songs, so I knew he knew them. Trying to avoid a repeat of his Grinch impression at the Christmas program, I STRONGLY encouraged him (and bribed him with ice cream after) to be happy at the program and sing the songs. He was happy, he did most of the motions, but I didn't see much singing going on.
Of course we still got ice cream.
When he went up to get his "diploma" he kind of stomped up there with his shoulders slumped and his pelvis and chin pushed forward (this is his "I'm embarrassed and uncomfortable being in the spotlight" pose). I wish I had gotten it on video. It was pretty funny and got a good laugh from the audience.
Here Harrison is with is beloved teacher, Miss Kristie. He talked a lot about how much he loved her, was going to miss her and "would never forget her" the last week of school.
This is his other beloved teacher, Miss Jane. He said all the same things about her. He really adored both of them. I did too. I think they were great for him. Like Fraulein Maria, they were firm, but kind. Just what he needed.
As promised, we went for ice cream after with the Jensen's. Unfortunately it was during Nate's "business" trip to CA, so he missed the whole thing.
Logan and Harrison were their usual silly, crazy selves.

Elizabeth was being extra funny that night and totally hamming it up for the camera.

Cute kids. Fun friends. Good times. Yummy ice cream.

None of the florescent stuff for me. When at Baskin Robins, I always have and always will order the chocolate peanut butter ice cream.
