So tonight we went to Alicia's Kindergarten graduation! This is the night I have been thinking about almost all year. What an important milestone. She has quite the crowd show up for her. It went pretty smoothly and was a lot of fun. We had asked Alicia all week what they would be doing and she said "I'm not telling." So we were pretty surprised to see her play Peter. The class recited versus and sang sings. They answered questions their classmates would ask them about the Bible. It was all very touching. I only cried once when the teacher has them go find their families to show them the paper they made at the beginning of the year about themselves and the one they did last week. It is AMAZING how much she has learned. Her handwriting is incredible now. Uncle Danny says it is even better then his.
Below is the beginning of the year picture. Alicia is crossing her arms because she is embarrased at how silly it looks. It just says, "my name is Alicia" with a picture of herself. And then the other picture you can't see that she wrote many sentences in very good handwriting, things about herself with a picture of a little red-headed girl swimming. :)

I will cherish this piece of art forever!
I just have to add the picture of my mom with Alicia. It was nice to have "Nana" there as she was just up here yesterday for Ethan's party.
