Alexa: Kindergarten Promotion

Today is Alexa's BIG day!
She graduated from Kindergarten!
She's officially a 1st Grader now (although she technically still has 3 1/2 days of school left!!)!
She has been looking forward to this day for a looooong time. So have I.
And then Payton got super sick this week. I agonized about having to miss Alexa's promotion today.
But thankfully I didn't have to stay overnight at the hospital with Payton last night, AND a sweet friend came to the rescue this morning...offering to come stay with Payton while I went to the school.
It broke my heart though to leave Payton screaming for me because she wanted to go and because she was so sick!
The first part of the Kindergarten Promotion was an ABC Parade.
Each of the students was assigned a letter.
Alexa got "B".
She was a Beautiful Bride!
A fun new friend from the gym happened to have this perfect bride dress up dress that she let me borrow!
Isn't she adorable??!!!
Beaming during the parade!

Then there was a musical performance.
They sang some really cute songs.
I wish I could figure out how to get my videos to upload!

Barrett thought the songs were too loud!

Then there was a class presentation back in Alexa's classroom.
Her teacher, Miss White, is seriously amazing!

Getting her certificate!!!

I am so proud of Alexa!  She has come so far and learned soooo much this past year!
She has LOVED Kindergarten and LOVED Miss White!
There was a family picnic to finish things off...but I left early to go home to be with Payton, and Alexa enjoyed having lunch with her best friend, Ally, and her mom.

1st Grade...HERE WE COME!!!!
