It's Official...

Kindergarten graduation was last night ~ soooo cute! We made a big deal out of it and celebrated Emma's accomplishment and the fact that she is growing into a responsible young lady and she is learning to live out the biblical truths she is learning (at home and at school). We had a special steak dinner, Tim got Emma flowers and I made a card.

Emma got to lead the procession into the gym.

She led the pledge to the Christian flag. Her cousin, Jacob, (on the right) led the pledge of allegiance.

Each child had a Bible verse to say that started with a letter of the alphabet. Emma's was John 2:17, "Zeal for your house will consume me."

These six kids make up Emma's whole class.

Each child got a character trait award. Emma's was diligence. (I'm having trouble with the video so I will try it in a separate post.) Mrs. Moodie is a truly Godly woman and she blessed each child with words of encouragement and affirmation. She said some really sweet things! It was a tear-jerker for me.
