Van's preschool class had an advancement/graduation ceremony at the end of last month. They put together a short program and handed out certificates to all the kids. After being away from school for two weeks, Van was a tad-bit gun shy. He refused to participate and it took everything we could to get him to stay up on the hill with the rest of his classmates. Despite his silliness that day, I am extremely proud of him and the great progress he has made in preschool this year.
