watch out, here she comes

And so it goes and then it went, our year of Kindergarten. Our big night was last night and Grace was in fine form. She said to one of her fellow graduates, "Y'know, this reminds me of our college graduation." Oh, if only college graduations are as cute and short as this one was! But at least she's got goals, right? Its hard to say which part she was most thrilled about - her "graduation hat", the "golden metal" she got (each kid got a medal instead of a paper diploma), the fact that her Salsie and Pops came, her surprise at Nate being there ("Daddy, I can't believe you aren't at the hospital!!"), or our celebratory trip to Cold Stone (where she marched right in and told EVERYBODY there that she just graduated from Kindergarten). It was a sweet night and I just can't believe that she's growing up so fast!

So, true, "First Grade, if I can make it there, I'll make it anywhere." Since this reminds Grace of her college graduation, definitely keep this video to play when she's awarded her PhD at 19.

Tell Grace that her hair looks great. She's got some serious stage presence.

We LOVED the video. We've now watched it at least 5 times this morning. She looks very graduated in her beautiful hat.
