 Ethan graduated from preschool on Friday. Well, technically he didn't graduate since the little dude is heading back there next year. So we'll say he graduated from his first year of preschool. Quite an accomplishment considering all of that hard organized play they put in. Boy, did we celebrate.
 Oh, and I shouldn't have called him a "little" dude. According to his preschool book, he has grown three inches since September. I knew I wasn't just seeing things.
 He adores his teacher, Miss Rebecca. He has made quite a few friends too... from all over the world. At his end of the year picnic, we were all supposed to bring a dish from our home country. I totally missed out on an opportunity to take green jello with shredded carrots in it. Or funeral potatoes. I took a fruit salad that was quite a hit, so no regrets :-). But next year I might just show up with some Lion House rolls.
They have practiced and practiced over the last few months to put on a show for us. And don't worry, Ethan didn't crack a smile the entire time. He did warm up to be quite the performer though (see video at the end of this post).

And yes, things got a little out of hand towards the end.

Love the green jello idea! I'm not sure what funeral potatoes are. Your son looks so sweet and proud up there getting his diploma. It's a milestone in his life!
Your family photo is so great and my, you do look beautiful
Now for your little girl. An angel. And her dress is adorable.
