Kindergarten Graduation

Today was kindergarten graduation.  Any and Josue graduated.  Mirian, John, Matt, Nicole, Marc, and I went to this big event.  John was Any's padrino and I was Josue's madrina.  Marc led the prayer.

 Nice black sandals Any has (see yesterday's post)

Graduation was to start at 1:00 p.m.  We left here at 1:15.  We were still the first ones there.  Graduation finally started at 2:40.  That was much better than the year I went to Maryuri and Nohemy's graduation.

Since we had so much time, we took lots of group shots.  I really liked this one.

Kim, I especially thought you would want to see the decorations.

After the children were escorted in by their padrinos or madrinas, each child had a small speaking part.  During the speaking, there was quite a bit of entertainment.  Two boys began scuffling with each other.  One fell out of his chair.  I was so thankful our children were behaving.
 Josue spoke better with his head tilted

Josue received an honor diploma.  I don't think we have ever seen one of those at Casa de Esperanza.

Then there was a little dance.

Unexpected to me, the padrinos and madrinas had to dance, too.  I did my part.

Last, but not least was the gifts. 

I think that was the favorite part.

It was a special day and I am glad I could be part of it.
