See You Later Alligator

Friday was Michael's last day of preschool before summer break. We were invited to the "See You Later Alligator" celebration at 10:30. Luckily, Friday was Todd's flex day from work and he was able to go too.

The teachers had set up chairs on the lawn outside the classroom. It was warm but not ridiculously hot as it can be in May in SC. I sat down on a chair while Todd stood up to take pictures. This way, Katie could also roam around a bit as I know she wasn't going to sit still for long.

The kids came out of the classroom. Michael was the line leader for the show. He looked a little unsure about what was going to happen next.

They sang songs about their numbers, letters, nursery rhymes while they danced. All of the kids had alligator t-shirts that they made in class with an alligator hat. It was so cute to watch them. Michael didn't sing very much but he did do some of the motions that went with the songs. I wasn't surprised at all since he did the same thing at the Thanksgiving and Christmas shows. The last song they sang was "See you Later Alligator".

After the program, there were some refreshments, as well as an alligator cake. We hung out for a bit talking with some of the parents of Michael's classmates and his teachers.

I know that Michael is going to miss school over the summer but I am pretty sure we will stay busy with the library, pool, trips and PT. Throw in a few playdates and before we know it, school will start again. This year has been a great learning and growing experience for Michael. His teachers were wonderful and he really enjoyed going to school, especially on Mondays when he stayed for "lunchbox". Looking forward to next year!

That looks like a great time. And how nice that Michael was line leader.

How fun! I was a total basket case over Cooper's first year of preschool being over last week!
