Preschool Graduation

Princess graduated from preschool for the third time...but this time it is for REAL! My baby girl truly is all done with preschool now and is off to kindergarten in the fall. Sniff, sniff. She has three years of preschool under her belt and is more than ready for kindergarten--but it still is hard to leave preschool behind.
Here she is on her first day of preschool in September of little...not even three yet!
She was so excited to be going to preschool. She was the only child in the class who cried (and screamed!) when it was time to LEAVE school.
She "graduated" in early June of 2007--look how nicely that little red graduation robe fit her back then at age 3.5...
She went back to preschool in the fall of 2007--this time she went two mornings a week (her first year it just was one morning.)
She grew up SO much in that year--here she is ready for her last day of preschool at the end of her second year.
And then my sweet girl graduated...again!
In September of 2008 she started her final year of preschool. This time around she went three afternoons a week. She was so excited!
Here she is in the preschool hallway on her first day back at school...look at her height difference compared to the first day of her first year (those rainbow borders on the wall never move!)
Yes, definitely excited to be back at preschool!
Now here she is today...her last day EVER of preschool. She is so beautiful...and still my baby despite her height!
The chubby baby cheeks are gone...
And the preschool graduation robes definitely haven't grown at the same rate as my girl!
Happy "Congratulation" Day, Princess! (Those are her words!) I love you forever and always. I'm so proud of you and I hope you love kindergarten as much as you loved preschool.

Oh, how sweet!! I love how little she was when she started. You must be so sad and so proud all at once!

What a doll!!! She has definitely grown up during pre-school. She will LOVE kindergarten! I can't believe it goes by so quickly.

That was the first thing I noticed-- the cheeks and face chub are totally gone!
