Preschool Graduation

Tuesday was a special day because Will graduated from 4's class at Chapel Hill Children's School. It made me so sad to think of my last child graduating from preschool. It did ease the sadness to know that he will actually be staying at CHCS one more year for Transitional Kindergarten. The school has been a huge part of our lives for the past 8 years, and I can't imagine what it will be like not to walk those halls each week! They always do such a great job with graduation, and the kids looked so cute in their cap and gowns. They came out first and sang some songs for us, and then they were introduced one by one by class and presented their diploma. Will was introduced as the son of Beth and Ray Semadeni. His favorite food is corn dogs and Sprite (I know there must be an award in there for me for instilling such great food choices) and he wants to be a teacher when he grows up! I think that means that he loves school. Then Will received recognition and a special Bible because he has been at CHCS all four years! Both girls got a Bible, too. They finished the program by singing their school song - Church on the Hill and then playing a slide show that included pictures from this year and years past. For graduation Dad and I presented him with The Big Book of Trains. He was excited about the book and all the attention from the day. The whole family is so proud of Will and all he has learned this year. We know that next year will be a great year for him, too!
