Our five-year-old grandson Asher graduated from preschool last week. It's so hard to believe that he's arrived at this milestone already in his young life.
The graduation ceremony was all one would expect: the "grads" marched in wearing their little red caps and gowns to the strains of POMP AND CIRCUMSTANCE. They were seated down front and called up to the platform one at a time to receive their diplomas.
The main difference between this graduation ceremony and others was the question that the preschool director asked each graduate as they received their diplomas: "___________, what do you want to be when you grow up?" As you can imagine, there were some interesting answers!
Asher said that he wanted to be Batman when he grows up, several of the boys wanted to be other superheroes, little girls wanted to be Mommy or a ballerina, etc. So cute all around.
We are so proud of Asher, a cute and sweet young man. It's a joy to be his grandmother.
