Kindergarten Graduation, Bikes, and Friends

Long live the class of 2030! Thea was very excited on her graduation day. She wore her best butterfly outfit.

She and her classmates had a whole performance prepared, showing off their incredible skills. Here, they’re pretending to be dinosaurs.

Family came to watch the event! They posed for this picture, as we waited outside the Preschool classroom for Finn to wake from his nap. Then, we went back to our house, and Thea was the center of attention. She got a lovely blue dress and an Amazon Fire tablet, filled with learning games.

On the last day of Kindergarten, Thea wore her new blue dress and Mrs. Lauver had a final message for the sign-in board.

I had a quick look at the word families posted on the wall, and noticed one special ‘in’ word… Finn must have been on her mind.

One of her last moments as a Kindergartener…. and the start of a grumpy breakfast across the hall, as I left for work.

The next day, Thea and I snuck out for an early morning bike ride.

We practiced for the Tour de Belt bicycle ride. Jason hauled the kids, and I followed along on my bike.

When Thea was a baby, we had to find new homes for our two dogs. One of them – Ava – lives with Jason’s boss and his family, who live in our neighborhood. On Friday evening, Jason and Finn took Ava for a walk (and Finn had a little scrape on his cheek).

Later in the weekend, Finn and Thea rode their bikes around the neighborhood, and Finn figured out how to walk his bike on his own.
