"That's the first time I graduated!"

Last Thursday (YES!!! JUST DAYS AGO!!!), Owen graduated from Christ Lutheran Christian Preschool. It's official--he's ready for kindergarten.

Over the past couple years, Owen has shown that he does not like performing in front of an audience. He tapped (banged?) his foot during his first Christmas program, and refused to get up and sing at last year's Mothers' Tea. This year, he has done much better, but still gets the butterflies. This picture shows it clearly. While all the other graduates are giddy with excitement waiting to answer CLCP's traditional BIG question at graduation, "What do you want to be when you grow up?," Owen is nervously rehearsing his answer...

The loooooong walk across the stage...

And his answer: "An artist." Those lessons are going to pay off, Grandma and Grandpa!

Guyan took this picture of the new graduate with his proud parents. Just after Owen had received his diploma, he turned to me and said, "That's the first time I graduated!" Here's to many more!
