Kindergarten Graduation Idea – Watching Them Grow Up

Where did my little red-haired baby go and who is this tall boy with his name?  Today is my oldest son’s Kindergarten graduation.  I know, some of you are rolling your eyes.  Especially those of you who may be younger and without kids.  I was the same way.  It’s Kindergarten.  Who cares, right?

It didn’t hit me really until we went for a walk yesterday and there was a few big banners in front yards that said things like, “Congratulations Rebecca Smith!  Class of 2014 – West Virginia University bound!”  It’s coming you guys, and there’s nothing I can do to stop it.  This Kindergarten graduation is a step toward one of my kids leaving the house for good and starting a life, and maybe a family, of his own.

This is him when this blog began (3 years old)


And this is him this month, doing a Carl Grimes (from Walking Dead) impression.

Time just keeps rolling on and every single day we have with them as kids can’t be redone.  You can’t get it back once it’s over, so it has to count now.

We made up a little page of these questions with lines for him to fill out and hopefully, we’ll be able to convince him to do it until his final graduation, then put them all together in a book for him.

What questions would you put on?  We’re going to have his first day of school signs, pictures, and then this little sheet for each school year so he can see what we’ve seen, a little boy growing up before our eyes and becoming a wonderful young man.

    I love this idea. I read a story about a dad who had his daughter’s teachers sign a copy of “the places you’ll go” every year and then he presented it to her at her high school graduation. I would like to do that but I don’t know if I can keep a secret like that for 13 years!
