Kindergarten graduation

So Ashton had his kindergarten graduation today, my mom was able to come and Jason came from work.  We all met in the auditorium and they said the pledge of allegiance and then recited some poems that they had memorized and we then headed back to their class.  It was kind of short and not much happened, I was a little disappointed but oh well.  Ashton has had so much fun this year with school, and learned a ton.  I am so proud of him and can't wait to have the summer to play and have fun. 

He was part of a huge kindergarten class, they had 107 students in kindergarten this year it is the biggest class size this school has ever had.

Noah of course didn't want to be there so I guess it was a good thing it was short.

I was so happy Jason was able to get away from work and be there for Ashton, but then I also felt a little bad when it was so short, oh well at least Ashton was happy to have daddy there.  (look at those arms!)

Ashton and his teacher Mrs Scow, he did not want to have his picture taken he was being really shy.  I made him go and stand by her, but what a good boy he did and even smiled for me.

My mom was able to come and Ashton was thrilled about that, he loves his grandma.  But who wouldn't with an awesome grandma like her.

I can't believe how big Ashton is, it seems like just yesterday I had him and here he is starting 1st grade in the fall.  I am both thrilled and sad about this all at the same time.

Later that afternoon I thought the boys would like it if I blew up the pool for them and all their friends.  Of course they were thrilled with that, all though it didn't take long before they were all starving and needed a snack.  I love our new neighborhood, it is full of so many kids and I love that my boys have so many kids to play with.  It can get a little overwhelming at times (like a few days ago when there were 10 boys inside the house playing)  but I also wouldn't trade it for anything.
