tante omi, onkle opa and jonah with the proud graduate
Dante is offically a "Big Boy" now. He graduated from Kindergarten at St. Francis of Assisi Parch School yesterday. It was a lovely ceremony. The childern marched into the church two by two to "Pomp and Circumstance." They assembled on the alter steps and sang a few songs, read from the podium (yes READ! in Kindergarten!) sang some more, received their certificates, and then filed back out to the hall for some cake. I was so proud of myself....no tears! I was sure I would cry, I even brought kleenex with me. But Dante had such a proud look on his face the whole day that all I could do was smile. After we had cake and punch, we invited some of his friends to join us at Chuck E Cheese to continue the celebration. After all, even Big Boys are never too old for Chuck E's!.
