No more kindergarteners in our house! Hazel and Charlie did kindergarten graduation with our homeschool group last weekend. It's on to first grade here at Chaos Academy!
They were so excited!

Each kiddo received a diploma for finishing kindergarten along with a certificate recognizing an outstanding character quality that they displayed over the year. We recognized Hazel for the character trait of determination and Charlie for tender-heartedness.
I spent so many years mocking all graduations for anyone under the age of 18, and I'll be honest and say that I still think it's a little silly to parade 4 and 5 year olds around in miniature cap and gowns for PK and kinder graduations, but participating in our homeschool group's kindergarten graduation the last couple of years has been such a wonderful thing for our family. We've made some dear friends and been able to recognize some significant accomplishments that our family has made during our first couple of years homeschooling. I'm proud of what we've done and where we're going. Way to go, kindergrads!
