We made it home on Thursday night, touching down at Logan Airport at approximately 11:58pm. After getting detoured on our way home, a 10 minute ride turned into 40. I think I last remember the clock reading 2:05am. Then it was up at 7am to get Madigan ready for her big day.
Graduation started at 9am, so off to the tub she went to look sparkly clean. The ceremony was quick and painless. Lots of songs that they have learned this year, and they each played a part of an animal in the story their teacher read. Madigan was a bumble bee. They had lots of fun with that. Somewhere in my crazed mind before leaving for Aruba, I mentioned that we could do a "graduation party" back at my house. I figured 8 or 9 kids, 8 or nine adults would be the crowd. Boy was I wrong! I think all but 5 of the 31 graduates came with their parents! I should disclose here that not only had we returned to the U.S. a mere ten hours prior, but we are in the midst of a giant landscaping project here so my yard is all dirt and the pool is still closed. Never fear, the sprinkler and jumpy house came to our rescue. Everyone had a great time and it is so cute to watch the kids play together. We parents reflected on how fast the two years of preschool had gone and lamented on how we did not want them to grow up and become fresh, foul mouthed kids!
Here are some shots from the graduation. Hope you all had a great weekend!
