Last week, we all headed to Emi’s school for her “moving up ceremony.” Mia was already out of school and Ten took a day off so that we could properly make a big deal of it.
After free time and crafts, we all sat in a circle to sing some of the kids favorite songs. Emi’s favorite song from this class is one where you say good morning to your eyes, nose, and mouth. She loves singing time.
After songs, each child was called up to receive their certificate. We all clapped loudly and then got a pic with the teacher. We will miss Ms. Risa so much. She has really helped Emi come out of her she’ll and gain more confidence.
After the little ceremony, the kids were all treated to a really nice snack spread. So nice that my girls skipped lunch. There was a fruit platter, homemade cookies, pretzels, and more. I brought in string cheese. It was super easy and the kids loved it. Some even had seconds. I was okay bringing something so simple since I had brought treats to every single class party plus Emi’s birthday celebration. Simple was key for the end of the the year.
You could tell that Emi felt very special which was great since that was the whole point. Congratulations Emi!
We weren’t finished for the day yet though. The next stop was swimming. This was the first time Ten was able to watch Emi, so they were both excited.
Finally, we got to head home. By this time we were all so worn out that we decided to grab some takeout.
So, that was how we spent last Tuesday. One more class finished for the school year. Congrats Emi!
