I only cried a little.
They led with a slide show accompanied by a song I had never heard before. It was a woman singing, “don’t ever grow up,” and other similar heart wrenching lyrics. I just tuned it out and stayed strong.
Then all 80 kindergarteners, in unison, recited the cutest poem:
“Remember last fall
We were so small
Look at us now
We’ve grown so tall…”
That kind of thing.
I stayed strong.
Then, they all sang the song “New York, New York” with lyrics altered for a kindergarten graduation.
“Start spreading the news,
We’re leaving today.
We want to be a part of it
First grade, First grade”
Due to technical difficulties, they sang this song 3 times.
At the end of the last song, the P’s best girl friend sang a solo. That’s when I lost it a little.
My dad pointed out that we only have six more graduations to go: 6th grade, junior high, high school, college, med school, and law school.
None of those could be as cute as this one was.
