The Kindergarten Graduate

Little Miss Chloe graduated from Kindergarten this week.



There was a nice little ceremony conducted by our beloved, Miss Morgan.



There were photo ops...




proud parents and family...




and a table full of goodies to eat...




Yes, I shed a few tears...but not as much as I did the first month of Kindergarten.



I especially loved the graduation caps the kids made, so creative !!




If you would like to see a very sweet video that our "class historian" has made, click here, it's titled "Miss Morgan's Super Stars", you will enjoy it.




There was also a special graduation dress I whipped up the night before. My New Bernina made my last minute attempts at making this dress very smooth. For the first time, I used the gathering foot to attach the ruffle. I think the sewing Gods were looking after me, because I guessed on how much fabric to use for the ruffle, and about how much to gather it.. it was the last think I did before heading to bed late, and I was so pleased that I didn't have to rip out the seams and start over... Luckily, the Graduate was pleased with the outcome to.



Now, we are off to enjoy some summer fun...

Sounds like it was a special day for everyone - how cute are those kids!? We are about to lose Lucinda's kinder teacher as she has another job after 8 years with this kinder. Very sad as I love her and I know Lucinda has really enjoyed being with her.
I just adore the dress you made - fantastic fabrics and just love the frill. Well done.
Oh doesn't the time fly - they'll be teenagers before we know it!
Enjoy the holidays together!

Chloe is so lucky to have a fashionable seamstress for a mama!! I just love that video by Emil too, it's such a great synapses of the year...the Isabel part was so sad!!! I think the kids still talk about her. What a great school year for our little ones. Now for summer...I can't wait for the beach next week!!
