The journey of parenting is an adventure on its own; while it’s sometimes tough, there are many moments that fill me with joy. I love seeing Noah learn new skills like reading or writing—accomplishments he earned through hard work but also because of our encouragement. And now we are here, finishing kindergarten and getting ready to level-up and move on to first grade. Can you believe it? We are officially parents to a kindergarten graduate!
Kindergartener no more!
The 2020-2021 school year brought many unknowns and honestly I didn’t know how it was going to panned out. In fact, there came a point where we even considered having him homeschool!
But we didn’t.
Not because we changed our mind but because Noah really wanted to go to school with friends. This of course brought other obstacles (hey, Zoom), but fortunately I was able to be home and be there for support.
There I say, I was his second teacher.
And even though we had some obstacles along the way, we also had a lot of support from his teacher, Ms. G.
But it wasn’t all loom and gloom!
Noah was able to eventually go to physical school where he was able to finally meet his friends and make great memories together.
Of course he also got himself in trouble a few times, but isn’t that what school is all about?
But now with such a weird school year behind us, we can now say we have a kindergarten graduate!
I’m not sure when it happened but it did. And we couldn’t be prouder of him.
No kindergarten graduation ceremony
Unfortunately his school didn’t have a traditional ceremony, which was a bummer, but they were able to have a kindergarten parade!
Basically, families were able to decorate their cars and go all out. Some family definitely went all out and it just made the whole event better. It made the last day of school a bit more memorable.
But that didn’t mean we were not going to celebrate our kindergarten graduate!
We planned a special day for him.
Miniature golfing to celebrate his accomplishment as a kindergarten grad
Noah has never played mini golf before and he’s been asking to go for a while now, so this was a great opportunity for him to experience that.
He was so excited to play and wouldn’t stop talking about it. One thing we did remind him was that he had earned this experience due to his accomplishments in school.
He did really well and had a lot of fun
Okay. He and Olivia had a blast! But even though this was miniature golf, these kids were playing it like hockey!
Oh, if you would’ve seen it.
It was the perfect way for us to spend time together as a family after such an eventful day.
On to first grade
It is hard to believe that we have a soon-to-be first grader now. And even though we do not know how the 2021-2022 school year will look like, I am sure he is going to do great!
I might need some pointers on school supplies and other helpful hints. I am so glad that this blog exists for me, we are all in the same boat afterall.
If you had a graduate this year let me know how you celebrated or will celebrate such a huge accomplishment. And if you have any questions or comments about these topics please leave them below as well.
So here’s to first grade, to an easy transition and to a whole new set of unknowns and adventures!
