Preschool Graduation

It's blurry and out of focus, but this picture is worth a thousand words--CLAYTON DIDN'T LIKE GRADUATION CEREMONIES!! (And don't you love the look Brian is giving the teachers--DO WE HAVE TO DO THIS?!) He gets so nervous in new environments and I feel like this one was just sprung on him willie-nillie. He wasn't able to practice with the class since we were in Florida, so it was his first time in this particular building and definitely his first time in front of this crowd! He screamed the ENTIRE FIRST HALF of the program--Brian had to go up there to help the teachers because his tone kicked in and he was one little stiff body! He finally settled down during the slideshow but he still wasn't happy about the whole thing. He did perk up when he realized he was getting the award for "Most Improved."
And he had a smile when he got his diploma as well--I think he knew it meant the whole ordeal would soon be over!

And here he is giving me the look "why do you make me suffer through these things, Mom?!!"

Just another reason I'm glad our short journey with organized education is over for now!!!

Although he looks so sad, I love the first photo! It made me smile :-) Before you think I'm a sadist, I actually remember my pre-school graduation and I think my Mom has a similar photo (without Dad) of me.

I was thinking you could use it on for I heart Faces if an appropriate theme comes up.

Congrats, Clayton!
