the graduate

I know it's a little bit silly to make such a big deal out of a kindergarten graduation. I get it. How would she -not- have graduated?

And yet this is also a celebration of her time at this really wonderful school. She's been a student at St. Matts for more than half her life! And a way to say goodbye to these teachers who have loved her so well and taught her so much.

So we did the whole deal. "Diploma," bible, they gave the kids little silver crosses. There was a sheet cake, balloons, lots of running and screaming and inevitably crashing after the sugar rush wore off. There was a slideshow, and they handed out boxes of kleenex on the way into the sanctuary.

It was a nice day. And here we are. In the first week at home, with summer stretching out like a limitless expanse before us...

May God have mercy on us all.
